LANCASTER COUNTY, Pa.– A Lititz couple is facing felony charges after detectives uncovered heroin and counterfeit cash during a raid last week.

Rafael Maldonado Jr., 36, and Claudia Santini, 44, are facing possession with intent to delver, forgery and conspiracy charges.

The charges come after a year-long investigation that involved a Sept. 21 search of the East Woods Drive home and surveillance of a heroin sale that Maldonado had made last year outside a Lititz-area restaurant.

Police found the following at the home:

  • 6.4 grams of bulk heroin
  • Hundreds of bags used for packaging heroin
  • An unknown white-powder cutting agent
  • A grinder used in the cutting process
  • Six counterfeit $50 bills
  • 2 Naloxone kits
  • Ammunition for shotguns, handguns and rifles
  • Several cellphones
  • $116 in real cash

Despite finding ammunition, officials found no guns and there have been no charges filed regarding the ammunition.

Maldonado’s bail was set at $250,000; Santini’s at $150,000.

The investigation is ongoing.
