Sunbury detective credited in drug arrests

SUNBURY — More than 100 drug dealers arrested and a half million dollars worth of heroin, cocaine and other drugs confiscated over the past 18 months are due in large part to the efforts of one outstanding city police detective, Travis Bremigen.

That fact did not go unnoticed in the office of state Attorney General Tom Corbett.

Bremigen received a commendation from Corbett on Tuesday, and it was read aloud at the City Council meeting.

The citation praised Bremigen’s superior investigative abilities.

“You have displayed the utmost professionalism during the past 18 months that has resulted in five separate drug raids being executed in Northumberland County,” wrote Regional Director Randy Feathers. “Those raids not only resulted in the arrests of 115 people suspected of trafficking in drugs in your county and the surrounding counties, but also the seizure of such drugs as heroin, cocaine, crack cocaine, ecstasy pills, oxycontin and marijuana.”

Feathers said Bremigen was the driving force in establishing two Organized Crime Drug Enforcement Task Force investigations, which he led. They revealed two separate drug organizations operating in Snyder, Union, Montour and Northumberland counties.

“Those long-term sophisticated probes enabled law enforcement to dismantle those organizations that were transporting million of dollars of drugs to central Pennsylvania,” Feathers wrote.

Bremigen, he said, is “an asset to both the Sunbury Police Department and the Northumberland Drug Task Force.”
