A drug task force took a Lebanon city man into custody late last month after reportedly finding heroin and crack in his home, according to the county district attorney’s office.
In a search of his home in the 1200 block of Willow Street on July 25, officers uncovered 180 bags of heroin and approximately 5.9 grams of crack cocaine in 30-year-old Victor Martinez’ bedroom, according to a release from the district attorney’s office.

Easton‘s iconic brick and stone skyscraper is on target to be in new hands by the end of the year.
Mayor Sal Panto Jr. confirmed that the city is talking to a pair of finalists who want to buy the 91/2 -story city-owned Alpha Building, which anchors the southwest corner of Centre Square. The city agreed earlier this year to list the building for sale and solicit proposals from developers.
Officials declined to name the two finalists, or to say how many proposals were received — although Panto did say it was more than two.
“We are working more with one (developer) because they offered more,” Panto said of the ongoing negotiations.

Condé Nast Traveler recently tallied the results of an annual Readers’ Choice Survey, which asked their audience to rate cities on a number of aspects. Two of the sections asked readers to name the “friendliest” and “unfriendliest” cities in the world.
The survey revealed that Wilmington, Delaware, coming in at number eight, and Atlantic City, New Jersey, coming in at number five, are considered some of the most inhospitable cities.

WASHINGTON – The United States issued a global travel alert today, citing an al-Qaida threat that also caused the State Department to close 21 embassies and consulates this weekend in the Muslim world.
The State Department warned American citizens of the potential for terrorism particularly in the Middle East and North Africa, with a possible attack occurring or coming from the Arabian Peninsula.
“Current information suggests that al-Qaida and affiliated organizations continue to plan terrorist attacks both in the region and beyond, and that they may focus efforts to conduct attacks in the period between now and the end of August,” the statement said.
It urged American travelers to take extra precautions when traveling overseas and suggested they sign up for State Department alerts and register with U.S. consulates in the countries they are visiting.
PHILADELPHIA – The Philadelphia Eagles excused Riley Cooper from all team activities on Friday after the wide receiver was caught on video making a racial slur.
Cooper said the last few days have been incredibly difficult and he will step away to seek counseling.
“My actions were inexcusable,” he said. “The more I think about what I did, the more disgusted I get. I keep trying to figure out how I could have said something so repulsive, and what I can do to make things better.”
Cooper apologized profusely Wednesday after a video of him using the N-word at a Kenny Chesney concert last month surfaced on the Internet. The Eagles immediately fined him.
