Father and Son Face Drug Charges

Police: Crack, cocaine, marijuana, heroin and ecstasy all found in their home

A father and son were arrested on a variety of drug charges on Thursday at the conclusion of a six-month investigation by Bethlehem vice officers into drug activity at a home in a secluded neighborhood in the northeastern corner of the city.

Javier Colon Sr. and Javier Colon Jr. were both committed to Northampton County Prison following a search of their home at 411 Pine Top Trail, a home along a narrow, winding, tree-lined road not far south of the city line.

The arrest affidavit for 19-year-old Colon Jr. alleges that he twice sold crack cocaine to an undercover police detective, once on Feb. 8 and again on Tuesday. Both times, the meeting place was on the 300 block of E. North St., just east of the historic downtown district.

During the search of the home, police said they found 40 grams of crack cocaine, 12 grams of cocaine, $6,450 cash, marijuana, heroin, ecstasy, a scale and packaging materials, assorted smoking devices and multiple cell phones.

Colon Jr. was charged with two counts each of delivery of crack cocaine and possession with intent to deliver crack cocaine, both felonies, and one count each of possession of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia. District Judge Joseph Barner set his bail at $50,000.

Colon Sr., 45, was charged with one count of possession with intent to deliver cocaine and one count each of possession of heroin and possession of ecstasy. Barner set his bail at $15,000.
