You are exactly right, he wants all the publicity and does none of the work. He never had any intention of charging the other 19 people in the so called Drug Sting!!! We need a real drug force around here to clean up and keep on them. I live near 2 of the people so called Arrested in June and they sell more drugs now than ever???? Something is wrong with this. And if Wade needs people to rat to get the next person in this small town he is a moron. We all know who sells and does drugs, they don;t hide it at all cuz they don't have to. No one will do anything about it.

From what I heard that's where wade is trying or did get a job, so good luck he won't do anything and we all suffer while the police do nothing about this problem.

Get Reed off the streets in Lykens. And get a new police chief. Both are shady characters. I grew up in this area. The local cops are more interested in hiding in back alleys and giving out speeding tickets for driving 40mph in a 35 when you roll into town than cleaning up these small towns in the valley. I can't tell you how many drug deals I saw when I was a teen - many of them involving the local law.

There's a state police barracks in e-ville. Get them involved. Or the Feds in Harrisburg... they've wanted Reed for ages. He always gets away somehow. And the people around him suffer.

Do you think any of the 21 arrested will ever be charged for it? I hope so, I know 2 of them are still into the same activity. But no one seems to care, except us people who have to live by them. 21 years old, no job lives with mommy (an addict) moves baby and young girlfriend in?? But acts like some kind of gangsta! LOL He would run from his own shadow. How can we as home owners clean up this trash? Landlords don't care who they rent to and obviously even if they pay the rent. Where do we turn. They have unlicensed drug runners in the yard (vehicles), they break down they slap plate on new junker and drive. No license, no car insurance??? They have all the rights, us tax payers are paying for them to sit on welfare...

Excuse me,...last I knew, Jolliet was big on drugs. Where are the cops there ? Oh !! that`s right...they are very hard at work.
Hardly working to arrest the abusive, psychotic scumbag waste of spaces...!!!!!!
Quite frankly, everyone that lives in that tiny, tiny village are felons or ..think that they are "On Top of the World".
HAA HAAA HAAAAA !!! The only thing they are on top of, is the Mountain !
Mountain Men are America`s Most Wanted Rejects !!
Funny Though, is`nt it ?
I mean, it`s ironic that Jolliet did`nt blow away with the all the high winds we`ve been having.
Wade would join in with everyone up there.
It`s a free for all !

First and foremost, the Lykens borough council should be held accountable for hiring Wade.
His background check must have "accidentally" got misplaced ?
I`m sure that`s what it was.
Maybe I`ll find it.
I`m certain I can do a better job.
I sure hope he does`nt get away with his most recent incident. I mean, it DID make the NEWS.
Wade slipped through the cracks alot of times.
We ALL know THAT is`nt RIGHT !!!!
And WE ALL know if it were US- regular tax payers who do our job right,..we would still be rotting in jail from the first offense.
Maybe his feces smell like cherries and everyone wants a sniff !!!

Wade is little more than a bully and an insult to police officers everywhere. His primary concern seems to be self promotion and seems not to care at all for the town he was sworn to protect and serve. Since I believe he lives in Berks county, one would need to question his personal motivation in coming this far north to begin with. He needs to go,no question about it. I believe everything about Wade should be investigated and hopefully the truth will free Lykens of his unwanted service and presence.

Seems to me all of you are having issues with good cops. When someone busts your son or a family member of yours for being a durgy. You think badly of police. Wade has been known for good aswell as the bad. People think it is much more fun to pick on the bad. As far as his past he was cleared as far as I know. If he wouldn't have been he wouldn't sill be a police officer. Peaopl get jealus of a good person and try to pull them down. You all point a finger and you I am sure have your faults you just never got cought. I am sure that you all will one day pay for your faults and just because he is a cop ya'll think that he is worse then you. I don't think Wade did anything but his job. If anything he should let some people go (like big high up type) so that this don't happen to him. If your not a messed up crocked cop you end up in a pickel. My advice to wade is to leave Lykens and find an area that really doesn't want durgy. Because I am guessing Lykens is HIGH you an stool that they think they are better then others. So Best for Wade to leave. I agree but for different reasons. Yous need a crocked cop. Good luck with that.

There is alot of great police out there infact I think highly of any police officer. I have a issue with the people around them. Someone tried to keep you safe and save your lives and what do you do but sit at home and talk about how "much better you can do" Try it. These men and women in blue. Go out and risk there lives for you. Think about that. Bad mouth them all you want. When they save your life. They don't think about the time maybe they arrised you for beating your wife or kid, or Drink and Driving. I don't understand why people like to bad mouth others before they think of there faults. TO ME! everyone here needs to grow up. you are all calling names and pointing fingers and you don't even know the whole truth. I don't. So I can't say anything about him. None of you do either. However yall are here. Poniting them fingers. Well I hope that they don't get cut off. The next time yall need help and dial 911 think about who is coming to your door. The man or woman in blue....hmm could they to have a past and at 15 smoked a joint. I am sure. Does that make them bad or something worse. Now they are saving your life. Hmmm....Think before you talk, you are all very childish. I wish Wade the best....and all of you.

No. Some of us do know the truth. Some of us have been accosted by this poor excuse of a man, or had family members falsely charged by him. Has your wife been followed home for no reason, has your wife had a gun pulled on her for a traffic stop, this prick needs to be not only fired from lykens, he needs to be stripped of any and all rights to become a Law Enforcement Officer in the future, He should not be allowed to carry or even own a gun period. He has threatened people in the past with his gun, and no he wasn't cleared of the charges. You should go out and talk to some of the teenage girls in the neighborhood and learn first hand some of the things he has tried to pull on them.He needs to Go, and he is getting fired, unfortunately we have to wait a little longer, but a late Christmas present is better than none at all.

p.s. Go back to school.

Good Cop??? HAHAHAHA. Must be a family member of Wade or Wade himself. No one has a problem with arresting people for drugs, but then charge them, not announce the arrest and get recognized and never file any charges???? HMMMMM, you really do not have a clue what your posting about. Or you are reading the posts wrong. Maybe under the influence????? HMMMMMM.

I couldn't agree more with Time 2 Go. Wade's previous charges were only dropped because witnessess did not appear at his hearing, and of course there are any number of reasons for this, possibly even intimidation, which would not be surprising. Wade has bad-mouthed Lykens repeatedly and exaggerated the problems in this town to the point of having it appear our crime rare exceeds that of the south Bronx. For this he deserves to be sued by every homeowner in this town. Let's not forget how long bad (even erroneus)publicity lingers in people's minds.

Ya'll just seem to want to pick on anyone you can A. I am not Wade, I am sure he is smart enought to relize ya'll have something wrong with you. As far as his family. I wouldn't mind being one but no I am not. I read about Wade. I have heard good and bad about this man. I just don't pick or point a finger. When some disagrees with you ya'll seem to attact them. Does that make you any better then what you are claming him to be. Attacting others. I think ya'll may be mad at him for maybe pulling you over or arresting you. I only see 2 or 3 of you replying. I don't know. However none of you can change my mind about this man. I think for myself. I belieave that if he can't defend himself. So someone has to. Like I said before ya'll need to stop name callin and grow up a bit. Maybe someone should speak up out of his family and give ya'll facts. I have heard his mouth to others and he doesn't know how to speak nicely but what cop does really. They are so use to putting up with people like yous it can make you that way. Noone can stop me from telling him Good luck and meaning it. Noone can tell me to stop defending him. I don't plan to. So you may come at me with ever you like. I will not stop going to bat for this man. I wouldn't want to be in a corner and have noonne to help me out. I am an older fella, I know when people are acting like childern and I see that here. Anyway, I am ready for any comment you have to give me.

Hmmmm
