Two Arrested in South Side Drug Raid

Easton police arrested two people early this morning during a warranted search of a home in the city's South Side neighborhood.

Authorities say Kelly Craven, 31, and Kahmir DeLapara, 20, were both arrested after the Easton Police Special Response Unit and Vice Unit discovered undisclosed amounts of heroin, crack cocaine, and marijuana at 315 Palmer St. They added the drugs were packaged in a manner consistent with intent to resell the substances.

Both were taken into custody and are going to be charged with possession with intent to deliver heroin, cocaine, and marijuana, as well as conspiracy to possess heroin.

Each is expected to be arraigned today in front of District Magistate Daniel Corpora.

Easton Police Crime Unit detectives also assisted during the search, in hopes of locating possible evidence relating to the homicide death of Amanda Stratford, which occurred on September 22 on Peach Street in the city's West Ward district , police said. No one has yet been charged in the crime.

No one was injured during the raid, police noted.
