An Allentown man free on bail as he underwent trial for drug offenses was charged Wednesday with trying to sell heroin out of his home, according to the Lehigh County Prosecutor’s Office.
Officers shortly after 5 p.m. saw Aurelio Pitre-Montalvo, 33, leaving his home on the 200 block of East Union Street and getting into a car. A marked police cruiser stopped the vehicle on Martin Luther King Boulevard west of South Fourth Street and told Pitre-Montalvo officials had obtained a search warrant for his home.
The suspect was allegedly carrying six bags of suspected heroin stamped “Blue Magic.” Investigators said a search of his home turned up even more evidence. Detectives allegedly found in an upstairs bedroom 332 bags of “Blue Magic” heroin with an estimated street value of over $6,600.
Pitre-Montalvo is charged with possessing a controlled substance with the intent to deliver and two counts of unlawful controlled substance possession. He was on Thursday jailed in Lehigh County Prison on $100,000 bail.
