Tabs

Case

On 2/12/16 the Harrisburg Police Vice Unit conducted an undercover operation in which they purchased 15 bundles of heroin and 2 grams of crack cocaine from Michael Hickerson for $975.  The undercover officer waited on the 1900 block of Primrose Street and a Keystone Taxi Cab pulled up.  Hickerson exited the vehicle and approached the undercover officer.  As he was about to get into the vehicle officers confronted Hickerson and told him that he was under arrest..  Hickerson fled but was tazed before he went too far.  He was found to have 150 baggies of heroin, a small amount of crack, 2 baggies of marijuana, and 15 Alpazolam pills.

As this occurred the cab attempted to flee the area but was stopped on 17th and North Streets.  Once officers approached they immediately observed heroin in plain view and could smell a strong odor of marijuana emanating from within the vehicle.  The driver, Ashley Williams and the front seat passenger, Neville Hill were taken into custody.  Hill provided a false name of Danay Hill.  This may have to due with her being wanted on a Capias.  Five males were in the rear of the vehicle.  They were identified and found to have the following items:

Gregory Leach- $755 in cash, cell phone 

Michael Anderson- $311 in cash and one oxycodone pill in plastic bag
