A twice convicted York City drug dealer is back in prison after York City narcotics officers raided his home Thursday and seized nearly $24,000 worth of raw heroin, according to police.
“That’s a significant amount,” city Detective First Class Andrew Shaffer said.
Plus, that heroin likely would have been “stepped on,” or cut, he said, which could as much as double its value. The $23,900 worth of heroin was all “raw,” or loose, meaning it still needed to be bagged, Shaffer said.
“Five years ago, we just didn’t see raw heroin like that,” he said. “And we see it constantly now.”
