An alleged drug dealer is facing multiple charges according to local police. The 26-year-old Macungie man was allegedly distributing heroin, and police further stated that he was found to be in possession of steroids, cocaine and miscellaneous prescription medications. The Macungie man is facing these drug charges after being allegedly caught selling the drugs with the use of confidential informants.
The drug charges that the 26-year-old man will face include five counts of felony possession with intent to deliver. His home was reportedly searched by police with his consent. He had been under investigation by the local police department for a month after he had allegedly sold heroin to a police informant on April 19, 2013 at the Allentown Fairgrounds. This informant allegedly purchased heroin from the accused dealer on May 21, 2013 again.
Local police officers detained the 26-year-old after the second drug purchase. They allegedly located 60 bags of what they suspected was heroin on him at the time. The police then went to search his house, which according to the police contained what they suspected were vials of testosterone, cocaine, unidentified prescription medications and over $6,000 in cash. The accused was released on $250,000 bail after being arraigned.
The 26-year-old man who was allegedly caught in possession of drugs is facing many felony drug charges to include the possession of the drugs and the intent to distribute the drugs. He was also allegedly found with multiple types of controlled substances, all of which will constitute separate charges. All of these charges are extremely serious, but a criminal law attorney may be able to help the man plead down to lesser charges to reduce his overall prison time. An attorney may also help him work out a deal with the police that can result in more favorable considerations for him.
