Northeast Times: Grams Amongst the Children

Northeast Times details narcotics raid.

Neighborhood complaints led to the arrest of a Holmesburg man last week on charges that he sold drugs from his family’s home.

Philadelphia police narcotics field unit officers raided the home of Edward Prince, 30, on the 4600 block of Vista St., shortly before 6 p.m. last Friday, said Sgt. Joe Bologna.

Officers allegedly seized 16 grams of cocaine, eight grams of heroin and 86 prescription pills including painkillers OxyContin and Percocet. Police also found a 12-gauge shotgun, .30-caliber rifle and stolen .38-caliber handgun, Bologna said.

Investigators allegedly bought drugs from Prince during a weeklong undercover operation.

According to police, four children, ranging in age from an infant to 10 years, live in the home with the suspect.

Officer Jeff Cujdila of the narcotics field unit led the investigation.
