Police Seize Heroin at Ferry Street House During Raid

Easton Police seized about $1,000 worth of heroin and arrested a local resident during a search of a house in the 600 block of Ferry Street early this morning, the department has announced.

At about 6 a.m., members of the city's vice and special response units executed a narcotics search warrant at 679 Ferry St., Apt. 1, according to an EPD press release.

Arrested at the scene was Alonzo Watts, 46, who was the target of a several-months long investigation for drug dealing, police say. In addition to the search warrant, authorities also had a warrant for Watts' arrest, they added.

Watts is expected to be arraigned later today on charges of possession with intent to deliver heroin and criminal use of a communication device.

The Ferry Street property is owned by Abreu Anibal, of Easton, according to a search of online Northampton County property records.
