Two Arrested in Easton Drug Raid Tuesday Morning

Two West Ward Easton residents were arrested and charged with illegal drug offenses after Easton Police raided the residence early this morning.

Police say Esteban Candelario, 20, was arrested and charged with possession of heroin with intent to deliver, after they executed a search warrant at a residence in the first block of South 14th Street at about 6 a.m.. He is expected to be arraigned later today.

Lillian Werkheiser, no age given, was arrested and charged with possession of a small amount of marijuana, police reported. She has been processed and released, and will receive a summons by mail to answer to the charge, authorities added.

The Easton Police Department said the investigation was prompted by neighbor complaints regarding a high level of drug activity in the area.   Nobody was injured during the  search, which was carried out by the Easton Police Vice Narcotics Unit and Special Response Unit.
