The article below is from 2011. The business model of motorcycle clubs bringing cocaine packages into Coatesville and retail distributed out of Coatesville to the surrounding area is gone.
This was the Chester County drug business model for the City of Coatesville:
Friday, October 19, 2012Coatesville as a drug distribution center is on the way out:
West Chester slumlord/stash house/drug business that was allegedly nurtured for such a long time by former Chester County Republican Committee Area 14 Chairman Richard Legree is being replaced by a system that doesn't need Coatesville to distribute drugs.
Just like the coal mining business in West Virginia, Coatesville's drug dealer glory days are never coming back.
Heroin has replaced cocaine. And most importantly heroin that is sold directly from Mexico. Mexican cartels adopted Walmart's business model. Or maybe Amazon's business model. High quality Mexican heroin is delivered directly to you door.
Coatesville drug dealers business model is collapsing.
t began to collapse when marijuana was legalized. The Mexican cartels lost their marijuana business. They had a spectacular rebound with a much more profitable heroin business.
Mexican drug cartels created a new business model. They market high quality white heroin and they don't need Coatesville anymore to distribute their product. It comes direct to your door. It comes direct to the doors of white kids, in cities, in suburban and rural areas and so we have a Heroin Epidemic.

But that's another story.
It works the same way in West Chester as it does on "The Wire"
