Man Arrested During Raid Was Out on Bail
An Easton man who was arrested almost exactly one month ago during a police search of his residence and was out on bail was arrested again this morning and faces additional drug charges.
Easton police say Mark Parks Sr., 51, was arrested early this morning after heroin and cocaine were found during a warranted narcotics search of his home at 740 West Wilkes Barre St. Parks will be arraigned later today on charges of possession of heroin and cocaine and also faces charges of delivery of a controlled substance, they added.
On January 10, the same residence was raided by police, who reported they discovered approximately $10,000 worth of heroin, $3,000 worth of marijuana, and a scale at the residence. Parks was arrested and charged with possession with intent to distribute heroin and possession with intent to distribute marijuana.
Police say their search is complete at the residence for now; however, they intend to obtain a search warrant for a garage related to the investigation
