Police Arrest Alleged Heroin Dealer

City police say Anibal Diaz sold heroin to confidential informants in South Bethlehem.


A SouthSide Bethlehem man admitted to possessing and selling heroin in the city, with police saying he sold heroin to confidential informants at two locations, according to court records.

The case of Anibal Antonio Diaz, 23, of 722 E. Fourth St., Apt. 1, first floor, was handled by a detective assigned to Bethlehem police’s Special Operations Vice Unit that is investigating drug activity in the city.

The records say Diaz delivered heroin to confidential informants on September 23 and October 3 on the 700 block of E. Morton Street. The detective and the Special Operations unit and the police Emergency Response Team served a search warrant October 5 at Diaz’s residence.

Prior to the search warrant being served, Diaz delivered heroin to a confidential informant on the 400 block of E. Fourth Street, the records say.

Police seized “an amount” of heroin, a cell phone, mail and documents from the residence. Diaz, in a written statement, admitted to the heroin activity, the records say.

He was arraigned by District Judge Adrianne Masut of Wind Gap on four counts of manufacture, delivery or possession with intent to manufacture or deliver heroin. He was taken to Northampton County Prison after failing to post 10 percent of $15,000 bail.

Do you or someone you know need help with heroin or painkiller addiction? This life-threatening medical condition can now be treated in the privacy of a certified physician's office with prescription medication called buprenorphine (Suboxone/Subutex). Bupe is abuse resistant and has a ceiling to its effects making accidental fatal overdoses unlikely. It also blocks other opioids for days, and is not euphoric to people tolerant to opioids. It has enough opioid effect to stop cravings and withdrawal allowing the patient and their family to make the necessary changes that will translate to sustained addiction remission. TreatmentMatch.org is a free service from the non-profit organization naabt.org and is a confidential way to find doctors certified to treat opioid addiction in their office.

Thank you for sharing this article. I love hearing when people like this get caught, it's one less person out there doing illegal actions. I know there are many other painkiller addictions, and dealers etc but it's still nice when some of them are caught. http://withdrawalrelief.com
