A Lancaster man will serve up to 10 years for dealing heroin and crack cocaine, which police found last year at his city home.
The latest conviction was Travis L. Short’s third for drug-dealing offenses. He has served prison sentences, including a state-prison term, for previous convictions of dealing cocaine.
On Monday, Lancaster County Judge Margaret Miller sentenced Short to 5 to 10 years in state prison, pointing to Short’s criminal past.
The sentence was at the high end of state sentencing guidelines.
Short, 32, had 1.2 grams of heroin and 4.28 grams of crack cocaine, packaged for sales, when city police went to his Lehigh Avenue home on Nov. 12, 2015.
In court, prosecutors requested that Short be sentenced to consecutive terms on the two felony counts – which Judge Miller ordered.
Assistant District Attorney Maria Cusick was lead prosecutor.
Lancaster city police Officer Adam Flurry filed charges.
