Monday, January 30, 2017 by The Press in Police Log

Following a monthlong investigation, police made a drug-related arrest in the 100 block of West Fairview Street Jan. 25.

Police said numerous citizen complaints in the neighborhood led to the investigation and serving a warrant on Angel “Grizz” Carrasquillo, 36, at his home.

Police said a search of the residence uncovered two ounces each of cocaine and crystal methamphetamine, marijuana, Percocet, a scale, packaging materials and handgun bullets, and about $3,500 in cash. Police said they also found five Apple laptops that had been reported missing from the Bethlehem Area School District.

Carrasquillo was arrested and charged with three counts of possession with intent to deliver a controlled substance and one count of possession of drug paraphernalia. He was arraigned and committed to Northampton County Prison in lieu of $100,000 bail.
