Some charges dropped in Burlington drug bust

Posted: Updated:

Some charges stemming from a major drug bust in Burlington were tossed.

Burlington Police, the FBI, ATF, U.S. Marshals and state troopers all took part in the raid on Spring Street last March. Victor Allen and Maria Twitty were arrested.

But a judge ruled there's not enough evidence to prove that authorities knocked and announced they had search warrants before going in, which is law. Police believe someone did, but can't recall who that was. So, charges against the pair involving the raid were dismissed.

Allen still faces other drug charges.
