  • Allentown man sought on drug charges is found with heroin, police say

    An Allentown man whose home last week was found to be full of methamphetamine, cocaine and heroin was found Tuesday with a bag of heroin in his station wagon, police said.

    Jorge Marrero-Rodriguez, 52, of the 200 block of East Union Street, was stopped about 3:10 p.m. in his vehicle after he failed to use a turn signal in the 300 block of Gordon Street, city police said.

    Marrero-Rodriguez pulled over at Third and Linden streets where, police said, they saw him reaching under his seat before he was taken out of the vehicle, according to the arrest affidavit.

    On the driver’s side floor, police said, they spotted a plastic bag full of heroin. Next to the driver’s seat, they found a bag of needles and $896 in cash, the affidavit says. Police said they also took an uncapped needle from Marrero-Rodriguez.

    Police said he told them he is a heroin user.

    He was arraigned Tuesday night by District Judge Jacob Hammond on charges of possession with intent to deliver heroin, possession of a controlled substance and possesion of drug paraphernalia.

    Hammond committed him to Lehigh County Jail under $100,000 bail.

    Marrero-Rodriguez also was arraigned Tuesday night on charges of drug dealing, drug possession and drug-paraphernalia possession that arose from the Thursday search of his home.

    In that search, police said, they found three bags of meth, one bag of cocaine, a syringe loaded with liquid heroin, 193 Oxycodone pills, 51 Methadone pills, more pills and $1,645 in cash.

    Marrero-Rodriguez was not home during the police search, which resulted in a warrant for his arrest. On the charges related to the house search, Hammond set bail at an additional $50,000.
    He's stopped for traffic violation, and has drugs and needle with him, police say. A search of his home already found meth, cocaine, Oxycodone and more heroin, police say.
