Two Bethlehem men were arrested on drug charges by city police Friday after a surveillance and search of a city home where drug activity was suspected, according to court papers.
Luis A. Marquez, 35, of 1136 Amplex St., and Angel L. Vasquez, 38, of 627 Fiot Ave., were both charged with possession with intent to deliver heroin, criminal conspiracy and possession of drug paraphernalia and committed to Northampton County Prison in lieu of $75,000 bail.
According to the arrest affidavits, police observed Marquez and Vasquez leaving the home at 1175 C Livingston St. at about 10 a.m. Friday morning. Police later stopped the Nissan mini-van they were riding in and found heroin in between the two front seats.
Marquez had a hypodermic needle and heroin in his possession, the warrant said. Vasquez had several needles.
Marquez told police that he sells about 25 bags of heroin a day at between $10 and $15 each to support his own habit, his arrest affidavit says. Vasquez told police that he and Marquez sold six bags of heroin to someone on Thursday, according to his arrest affidavit.
