[ARCHIVED] Charges and Bail didn't Stop Lancaster Drug Dealer from Selling Heroin

A convicted drug dealer will serve up to 14 years in prison for his latest crimes – which included selling heroin while out on bail.

Heriberto Collazo sold heroin to undercover officers on numerous occasions in 2013 and 2014, and was charged after a search of his vehicle in April 2014.

Collazo, 28, posted bail – then continued in his drug trade.

Collazo recently pleaded guilty in Lancaster County Court to felony drug-dealing charges and was sentenced to 7 to 14 years in state prison.

Assistant District Attorney Maria Cusick negotiated the sentence. Judge James Cullen also ordered that Collazo serve 8 years of probation following the parole term.

During the investigation, Lancaster County Drug Task Force detectives executed a search warrant at Collazo’s home in the 700 block of Columbia Avenue and found heroin, along with a 9mm pistol.

He was convicted in 2007 of felony drug-dealing, prohibiting him from owning a firearm.

Police seized 57 grams of heroin during the investigation.

The state Attorney General’s office and Pennsylvania State Police assisted in the investigation.
