A convicted drug dealer will serve up to 14 years in prison for his latest crimes – which included selling heroin while out on bail.
Heriberto Collazo sold heroin to undercover officers on numerous occasions in 2013 and 2014, and was charged after a search of his vehicle in April 2014.
Collazo, 28, posted bail – then continued in his drug trade.
Collazo recently pleaded guilty in Lancaster County Court to felony drug-dealing charges and was sentenced to 7 to 14 years in state prison.
Assistant District Attorney Maria Cusick negotiated the sentence. Judge James Cullen also ordered that Collazo serve 8 years of probation following the parole term.
During the investigation, Lancaster County Drug Task Force detectives executed a search warrant at Collazo’s home in the 700 block of Columbia Avenue and found heroin, along with a 9mm pistol.
He was convicted in 2007 of felony drug-dealing, prohibiting him from owning a firearm.
Police seized 57 grams of heroin during the investigation.
The state Attorney General’s office and Pennsylvania State Police assisted in the investigation.
