[ARCHIVED] Guilty: Judge Convicts Dealer in Heroin/Cocaine Bust at East Hempfield Hotel


A Harrisburg man was convicted Thursday in Lancaster County Court of dealing heroin and cocaine, stemming from a bust at an East Hempfield Township hotel.

Lancaster County Judge Jeffery Wright convicted 42-year-old Carl Gould of felony drug-dealing and related counts on Thursday morning, following a four-day trial.

Gould will be sentenced after a background check is completed in a couple months, according to J. Alexander Marcinko, who won the conviction.

Pennsylvania State Police charged Gould regarding an Aug. 9, 2015, detail at Westfield Inn on Hempland Road.

Police seized drugs from a hotel room and Gould’s vehicle.

During trial, Marcinko presented evidence and testimony that 28 grams of cocaine, powder and crack form, and over a gram of heroin were seized from the vehicle. Over 7 grams of heroin was seized from the hotel room.
