FOX 29 has learned the Philadelphia District Attorney's office has dropped another 41 drug cases in wake of the controversy surrounding the police department's narcotics unit.
Sources in the criminal justice system tell FOX 29's Jeff Cole the cases were all felony cases and the suspects were being held in jail.
Those suspects not facing other charges will be released.
The move comes after a week FOX 29 first reported that, in a letter to the police commissioner, DA Seth Williams said his office would no longer use six former members of the narcotics unit as witnesses in drug cases.
The DA did not give a reason.
The officers have since been transferred, but have not been disciplined or charged.
Thus far, 58 drug cases have been dropped.
Rain arrives for the second half of the work week. Another fall-like blast of cool weather to follow for the weekend.
Scattered showers are possible tonight as a cold front approaches the area. Otherwise, the best chance for rain will be Thursday afternoon and night where we'll see on and off showers and thunderstorms.
Clouds and showers linger though much of Friday. We may still see a passing shower Saturday. Unseasonably cool air returns this weekend where both days only see high temps in the mid 70s with many of us falling into the 50s at night.
