Two men have been arrested for drug trafficking in Cumberland County.
Benjamin K. Irvin, 24 and Dylan S. Turpin, 22, both of 105 E. Allen St. were arrested Saturday and taken to Cumberland County Central Booking.
In December, the Mechanicsburg Police Department along with the Cumberland County Drug Task Force, opened an investigation into heroin drug trafficking originating in the area of East Allen Street in Mechanicsburg.
The Mechanicsburg Police, the Cumberland County Special Response Team and the Cumberland County Drug Task Force served a search warrant just after 6 a.m. Saturday at 105 E. Allen St.
The investigation is ongoing, and the search warrant has been judicially sealed.
The search warrant was served without incident, police said. No one was injured and no shots were fired.
Investigators found 243 bags of suspected heroin; suspected cocaine; suspected marijuana, suspected illegal prescription medications; drug paraphernalia, a stolen Glock 9mm pistol; ammunition and almost $2,000 in cash according to police.
Investigators also seized a Cadillac CTS sedan, jewelry, and electronics believed to be purchased with drug proceeds and/or used in drug transactions.
Officials said Irvin is on state parole for previous drug charges and Turpin is on county parole for various charges.
They will be arraigned on various charges, including possession with intent to deliver controlled substances.
