The Mobile Street Crimes Unit of the Pennsylvania Attorney General's office added dozens of arrest to its total during a sweep last week.

75 people were charged in after a six month long investigation in Beaver County.

The AG's office said the unit has made about 400 arrests in the past four deployments. More than 200 of those arrests came during a deployment in Harrisburg.

The MSCU deploys to a region of the state and works with local authorities. It has been in operation since 2013.

The suspects in the Beaver Co. sweep are charged with various felonies, including delivery of a controlled substance and possession with intent to deliver. The investigations led to the seizure of heroin, cocaine, crack cocaine, prescription pills and other drugs.
More than 50 of the individuals charged with felonies were being sought on active arrest warrants.
