A 17-year-veteran of the Philadelphia Police force turned himself in on Wednesday on multiple domestic-related incidents. 51-year-old officer Gerald Smith has now been charged with six-misdemeanors including assault and terroristic threats. Police say that Smith had punched a 46-year-old woman in the eye in January of 2016, as well as backhanding her in the chest during an argument in June. Smith has now been suspended from the police force and it is stated that the police department has intent to dismiss him from duty.

Four men have all been arrested after they were accused of sex trafficking minors in Philadelphia. United States Attorney Louis Lappen stated on Thursday that 26-year-old Collin Cowell, 38-year-old Rocio Ramos, 20-year-old Idalis Mendez, and 23-year-old Robert Broaddus have all been charged in sex trafficking three minors. 26-year-old Cowell was also charged with distributing child pornography, and 20-year-old Mendez is also being charged with production and distribution of child pornography. All four suspects could face life in prison.

Philadelphia Police have arrested three suspected drug dealers as a result of a joint investigation with the Drug Enforcement Administration. In the investigation police and the DEA have confiscated $3.3 million in heroin. 30-year-old Gheral Alavarez-Mercedes, 26-year-old Zamary L. Roland and 26-year-old Johel Pascal-Mateo have all been charged with possession with the intent to deliver and conspiracy. If all are found guilty, each suspect could face up to 60 years in prison.
