A man is under arrest and police seized more than 400 bags of heroin after a traffic stop this weekend in Lancaster County.
Police said K9 Casper helped find the drugs after they pulled over Sadi Corretger, 28, of Lancaster, on North Wolf Street in Manheim.
“Manheim police stopped Corretger’s vehicle on Saturday for a suspected window tint violation and for having an illegal windshield banner. Upon stopping the vehicle, police noticed a large amount of cash rubber-banded in a center console,” police said in a statement. “Police called for K9 Casper and the dog alerted to narcotics by the passenger-side door. Police searched inside the vehicle and found the heroin stash inside a passenger console.”
Police said they were also familiar with Corretger from “prior contacts related to drugs.” They also said a resident had informed them that Corretger’s vehicle had just been involved in a drug deal near their home.
Police said they found the following during the search of the vehicle:
– Three brick-shaped packages with bundles of heroin.
– 420 bags stamped with the “HULK” brand.
– $1,047 in cash.
Police said Corretger pushed officers and tried to get back in his vehicle after the traffic stop. He is now being held at the Lancaster County Prison on $250,000 bail.
Corretger is charged with possession with intent to deliver, resisting arrest and driving on a suspended license.
