Cocaine Sting Leads to Arrest of Bethlehem Man

A Bethlehem man has been jailed following a southside cocaine sting

Bethlehem police have made an arrest in a controlled buy of cocaine that occurred almost a year ago on the south side.

Carlos Juan Cintron Jr., 27, was arraigned Thursday for allegedly selling almost 50 grams of cocaine to a confidential informant on the night of March 2, 2012.

The site of the alleged sale – the 500 block of Evans Street – is about seven blocks west of Cintron’s home on the 1200 block of E. Third Street.

He was charged with two counts of possession with intent to deliver cocaine and one count of criminal use of a communications facility.

He was arraigned by District Judge Nancy Matos Gonzalez of Bethlehem and committed to Northampton County Prison in lieu of $75,000 bail.
