A pair of Lancaster County drug dealers were convicted at recent trials in county court regarding separate marijuana and cocaine-dealing operations.
Damon R. Ramos, 30, was convicted Tuesday at a non-jury trial regarding his possessing nearly two pounds of marijuana, intended for street sales, according to Assistant District Attorney Deborah Greathouse, who won both convictions.
Lancaster County President Judge Dennis Reinaker found Ramos guilty of felony possession with intent to deliver, receiving stolen property (a gun), person not to possess firearms and drug paraphernalia.
At the verdict, President Judge Reinaker increased Ramos’ bail to $500,000 cash. Ramos was remanded to Lancaster County Prison.
Ramos will be sentenced after a background check is completed in a couple months.
Lancaster city police Selective Enforcement Unit filed charges.
A Lancaster County jury convicted James Dulio on Sept. 15 of dealing crack cocaine.
West Hempfield Township police found Dulio, 41, in possession of 10.17 grams of crack cocaine.
The jury deliberated about three hours before returning guilty verdicts to felony possession with intent to deliver and drug paraphernalia.
Dulio is also facing a person not to possess charge regarding a firearm and will be tried on that count separately. Dulio has a prior aggravated assault conviction that prohibits him from possessing firearms.
Dulio will be sentenced after that case is resolved and a background check is completed.
West Hempfield Township police Officer Karl Hartranft filed charges.
