Lancaster man convicted for having stolen gun, heroin at storage locker
LANCASTER, Pa.– A Lancaster man was recently convicted in court of several charges after a heroin-dealing operation was uncovered last year.
Jose “Coco” Gonzalez, 42, was convicted of having over 16 grams of heroin and a stolen handgun in July 2016.
Three detectives testified in court about the investigation and what was recovered from a bag Gonzalez had while accessing a storage unit on Campbell Avenue.
Gonzalez had 16.68 grams of heroin, which is worth an estimated $5,500 if packaged for street sales, as well as packaging materials, and a 9mm pistol that was reported stolen out of Lancaster City.
In total, Gonzalez was convicted of felony drug-dealing, receiving stolen property, carrying a firearm without a license, drug paraphernalia, and providing false identification for police.
