A South Bethlehem man is facing criminal charges after city police found “a large amount of suspected marijuana” in his Philip Street home while executing a search warrant there, according to court records.
Jordan Pagan, 24, of 1444 Philip St., Unit 2, was detained Thursday morning after exiting his home. He was carrying a large amount of money and a cell phone with the same number that a confidential police informant had used to buy marijuana from him, according to the arrest affidavit, which was filed by a member of the Bethlehem Police Department's Special Operations Vice Unit.
Along with marijuana, police found a .40-caliber semi-automatic handgun with magazines and rounds, digital scales and baggies during the search of Pagan’s home, court papers said.
Pagan was charged with possession with intent to deliver marijuana, a first-class felony; criminal use of a cell phone, a third-class felony, and possession of drug paraphernalia.
He was arraigned before District Judge Patricia Romig-Passaro and committed to Northampton County Prison in lieu of $50,000 bail.
