Thompson Man Accused of Heroin Dealing

Police raided a home in Thompson on Wednesday night and arrested a 28-year-old suspected heroin dealer. 

Police obtained a warrant to search 13 Ravenelle Street because a resident, Lance Garcia, was suspected of selling heroin from his home. 

Around 6 p.m., state troopers from Troop D and the Quality of Life Task Force, as well as members of the Statewide Narcotics Task Force-East Office searched the home and said they found several bags of heroin packaged to sell, cash, Suboxone pills and cutting agents. 

Suboxone is used to treat opiate addiction. 

Garcia was arrested and charged with possession of heroin and possession of heroin with intent to sell. 

He was held on a 25,000 cash/surety bond and is scheduled to appear in Danielson Superior Court on July 27.
