YORK, Pa. (WHTM) - York police said they seized more than $113,000 worth of heroin and cocaine during a drug bust in the 900 block of W. Princess Street.

Officers found 412 bags of heroin, with a street value of $8,240, and $100,000 worth of raw heroin, enough to make more than $5,000 bags, when they searched 901 W. Princess on Tuesday, police said.

Police said they also found $5,300 in cocaine, $280 worth of marijuana, 63 Anadrol steroid pills, numerous drug packaging materials, $30,569 in cash, and three handguns.

Arrested were 38-year-old Miguel Garcia, who lived in the home, and 36-year-old Sisdey Paz, police said.

Garcia was charged with possession with the intent to deliver cocaine and heroin and possession of steroids, while Paz was charged with possession with the intent to deliver cocaine and marijuana.

Police said the first floor of the home was being operated as Miguel's Deli and Grocery.

"This is something that crosses all backgrounds, it touches any type of family you can think of any sex, any religion," said Chief Wes Kahley.

Kahley was referring to the heroin epidemic Pennsylvania, the Midstate and York face. Everything seized from that deli shows both the progress that is being made and the uphill battle that remains, he said.

"It's a sad day when this kind of activity is happening in our community and in our city," said York City Mayor Kim Bracey, who praised officers for making the bust.
     
"I think that we made a tremendous dent, a real good dent but I am also realistic and knowing that you see this amount here it tells you what's out on the street," Kahley said.
