Inquirer: You’ve… Got Busted

Philadelphia Inquirer details internet stings.

For the second time this month, the Bensalem Police Department has announced that it will make arrests based on undercover work on the Internet.

Police said yesterday they intend to arrest and charge three adults and 24 juveniles with 1,500 acts of graffiti that caused more than $100,000 in damage throughout the township during the last year.

After vandals spray-painted sites at the Veterans of Foreign Wars post in Bensalem on Flag Day June 14, a tip led to one of them, who then revealed an Internet connection, said Fred Harran, director of public safety.

On Sept. 7, police in the Bucks County township announced they had arrested 12 people suspected of offering prostitution and four others suspected of dealing or possessing the drug OxyContin. All were found through the Web site Craigslist, police said.
