Pennsylvania law enforcement officers arrested two people on drug charges after raiding a home in Richland Township on Nov. 14. Police reported that they decided to search the home on the 100 block of Gap Avenue after investigating possible drug activity at the location for two months. Officers took a 33-year-old man and 26-year-old woman into custody after discovering what they called "large quantities" of marijuana, heroin, cocaine and pills.
Motorists in Pennsylvania and around the country who are charged with driving under the influence are usually taken into custody after breath tests reveal their blood alcohol concentrations to be .08% or higher, but questions have been raised about the reliability of toxicology evidence in drunk driving cases for years. A team of reporters from the New York Times recently investigated the way police departments in the United States conduct breath tests, and they found that most of the equipment used is extremely unreliable.
