Three people were arrested after detectives said they raided an alleged heroin "stash house" in Lancaster Township.

Sandra Torres-Santiago, 34, had 138 grams of bulk heroin in her bedroom at 813 Sterling Place, and a coffee grinder with heroin residue, packaging materials, and $740 in cash were also seized from the home May 1, according to the Lancaster County Drug Task Force.

The bulk heroin has a street value of about $27,000, but if packaged for common streets sales authorities said the drugs would have been worth about $92,000.

Detectives said several people used the home to stash and package heroin before it was distributed to lower level dealers. All of the heroin was earmarked for sale within Lancaster County.

Authorities said one of the dealers, 43-year-old Bernard "Red" Galloway Jr., was arrested in his motel room on Old Philadelphia Pike in East Lampeter Township.

Twelve 10-bag bundles of heroin, worth about $2,400, and a ledger believed to have the names of heroin customers and the amount of money they owed were found in his vehicle, the task force said.

A third suspect, 31-year-old Moses "Pops" Hernandez, was arrested in Lancaster. Authorities said he was the leader of the heroin ring.

Torres-Santiago was charged with possession with intent to deliver heroin, criminal conspiracy and possession of drug paraphernalia. She was sent to Lancaster County Prison on $75,000 cash bail.

Galloway was charged with possession with intent to deliver heroin and committed to the county prison on $75,000 cash bail.

Hernandez was charged with possession with intent to deliver heroin, criminal conspiracy and possession of drug paraphernalia. His bail at the prison was set at $100,000 cash.
