4 Bronx men arrested in Pennsylvania drug sting

Four men from The Bronx are among more than 40 people facing charges following the end of a six-month drug investigation called "Operation Sunset" in Pennsylvania.

According to the Pennsylvania Attorney General's Office, the six-month investigation focused on the distribution and sale of an estimated $750,000 worth of LSD, crack cocaine and marijuana.

Investigators say the drugs were supplied by sources in New York City. Derrick James Ward, of The Bronx, is accused of heading one of two violent drug gangs in Scranton that was targeted in the sting.
