[ARCHIVED] 2 ‘Upper-Level’ Dealers Charged for Heroin, Cocaine, Marijuana


Two Lancaster County residents are charged with numerous felonies after the Drug Task Force found large quantities of heroin, cocaine and marijuana in recent searches.

The Task Force said Hector T. Morales and Daria Lopez-Kypreos are “upper-level dealers,” who had over $23,000 cash at one of their two residences.

Detectives estimated the seized stash of drugs had an estimated street value of $150,000.

Morales, 29, is a wanted fugitive, charged with seven felonies and three related misdemeanors. Anyone with information on his whereabouts is asked to contact police or submit a tip via this CrimeWatch page.

Lopez-Kypreos, 20, is charged with the same offenses. She is at Lancaster County Prison on $1.25 million bail, following arraignment.

The Task Force on May 4 raided a home on Lampeter Road in West Lampeter Township and an apartment on Swarr Run Road in East Hempfield Township.

Detectives found:

- 60 grams of bulk heroin (equivalent to about 2,000 bags) and an additional 153 bags of heroin;

- 1,270 grams of cocaine (about 1¼ kilograms of cocaine);

- About 6½ pounds of marijuana (and an additional 14 grams);

- Digitals scales, a vacuum sealer, dust masks, latex gloves and other drug-packaging materials;

- $23,500 cash

Morales and Lopez-Kypreos are presumed innocent.
