Police: SouthSide Man Sold Pot, Cocaine

Suspect met with a confidential informant at Stefko Boulevard gas station and sold marijuana and cocaine, police allege. Drugs also allegedly found in his Broadway home.


A South Bethlehem man who allegedly made a drug sale to a confidential police informant at a Stefko Boulevard gas station on Tuesday night is facing multiple felony charges, according to court records.

Tracy Eugene Porter Jr., 27, of 818 Broadway was apprehended at the Shell gas station, 1907 Stefko Boulevard, at a little before 7 p.m., just after allegedly selling marijuana and cocaine to the informant, court records say.

Bethlehem police then conducted a search of Porter’s home and found more cocaine and a digital scale, the affidavit says. Porter admitted that the drugs belonged to him in an interview with police, the court papers also say.

Porter was charged with two counts of possession with intent to deliver cocaine, one count of possession with intent to deliver marijuana and one count of possession of drug paraphernalia.

He was arraigned before on-duty District Judge Patricia Romig-Passaro and committed to Northampton County Prison after failing to post $25,000 bail.
