Justice Dept. joins Philadelphia war on crime
SOUTHWEST PHILADELPHIA - July 23, 2012 (WPVI) -- The City of Philadelphia has a new ally in its war on violent crime: the U.S. Department of Justice. Attorney General Eric Holder joined Mayor Nutter Monday in announcing the partnership. ..and its already producing results.. Action news' Nora Muchanic has more on that. After watching and listening to wiretaps, ATF agents and Philadelphia Police arrested eight men last Wednesday in a raid at 61st and Passyunk. Authorities say the suspects were planning to violently rob a rival drug dealer."These individuals have been involved in things like attempted murder, aggravated assault, murder, home invasions, armed carjacking, armed robberies," said ATF spokeswoman Sheree Mixell. That raid and others are the result of a partnership that's sent a surge of more than 50 federal agents from the FBI, ATF, DEA and other agencies who are focusing on violence and gun crimes in targeted areas.
