SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WWLP) – Springfield Police seized more than 1,600 bags of heroin and arrested two people whom they arrested last spring on similar charges.
Police raided an apartment on Grenada Terrace Wednesday.
Springfield police Spokesman Ryan Walsh told 22News they found 1640 bags of heroin, a half-ounce of raw heroin, a bag of cocaine and $1,300 in cash.
They charged 27-year-old Lemanuel Encarnacion and 32-year-old Karen Garcia with heroin trafficking, possession of cocaine, and violation of a “drug free school zone.” The two had been arrested together for heroin possession this past May.
Encarnacion is on probation possession with intent to sell cocaine.
