Three Hanover residents are facing charges they were dealing synthetic marijuana and the illegal drug ecstasy.
Police are looking for 21-year-old Alexander Meacher and his roommate, 24-year-old Randy Toot, after seizing 1,300 grams of synthetic marijuana and 230 grams of ecstasy during a search of their apartment in the 200 block of Carlisle Street, according to a news release from the York County District Attorney's Office.
Police estimated the value of total value of
the substances to be $26,800.
Toot's girlfriend, 24-year-old Adriana Lua, was in the apartment during the search Monday and was arrested after authorities found several packets of synthetic marijuana packaged for sale in her purse, the release stated.
Authorities said they also found items used to package the drugs and $3,500 in cash in the apartment.
The York County Drug Task Force and Hanover police detectives had been investigating Meacher and Toot's alleged drug sales for three weeks before the search, and had made controlled buys from Meacher, according to the DA's office.
Officers before the search had approached Meacher in a parking lot at the North Hanover Mall, but he fled in his black Chevrolet S-10 pickup truck, the release stated.
A pursuit was called off due to Meacher's speeds as he approached the downtown business district.
All three have been charged with possession with the intent to deliver and criminal conspiracy.
Meacher faces additional counts of fleeing and eluding, recklessly endangering and reckless driving.
