An Ephrata couple is charged with dealing heroin after the Lancaster County Drug Task Force – in response to neighbor complaints – raided an apartment.
The Drug Task Force raided an apartment in the 1000 block of Henn Ave. and found 127 bags of heroin and a digital scale.
Curtis Morris Sr., 59, and Cameo Morris, 57, are charged with felony possession with intent to deliver heroin and conspiracy.
They were arraigned on the charges and bail was set at $500,000 apiece, which has not been posted.
Neighbors had complained and reported to authorities they believed drug-dealing activity was happening at the apartment complex.
The Task Force investigated, including surveillance operations, and raided the Morris apartment on Sept. 6.
“This arrest illustrates the results of looking out for your neighborhood and speaking up,” Lancaster County District Attorney Craig Stedman said. “It is not the largest bust our Task Force has had, but it means a lot to this community.”
Cameo Morris waived a preliminary hearing on all charges Tuesday.
Assistant District Attorney Barry Goldman approved the charges.
Curtis and Cameo Morris are presumed innocent.
