A Lancaster man is charged with dealing heroin after K9 Casper assisted Manheim police in finding over 400 bags during a weekend traffic stop.

Manheim police stopped Corretger’s vehicle on Saturday for a suspected window tint violation and for having an illegal windshield banner.

While arresting Corretger, he resisted by balling his fists, flailing his arms and shoving officers in attempts to get back in his vehicle.
Manheim police Officer Kirk Colwell filed charges.
