READING, Pa. - More than 48 hours after beginning their search of an apartment in Reading, investigators are keeping tight-lipped about who or what they were looking for.
When asked about the case Friday, Berks County District Attorney John Adams told 69 News he had "no comment."
Adams, whose office is leading the investigation, and his chief detective, Mike Gombar, were among several law enforcement officials to converge on an apartment building at South Eighth and Franklin streets on Wednesday.
Investigators forced their way inside a first-floor unit before sunrise that morning, armed with warrant to search "for the bodies of John Doe #1, Jane Doe #1, and Jane Doe #2," according to court paperwork obtained by 69 News.
No bodies were reportedly found, but detectives did seize cocaine, heroin, cash, and two loaded handguns.
They also arrested a man who was inside at the time. Christopher Morales-Feliciano, 20, was charged with two felony drug charges and three misdemeanors and committed to the Berks County Jail on $200,000 bail.
While there, detectives also busted Munib Tapia-Gomez, 20, in a second-floor apartment on an unrelated weapons charge. He was placed behind bars in BCJ on $100,000 bail.
In addition, a tarp-covered car was towed from in front of the building after it was looked at closely by Adams and Gombar.
The building remained a crime scene through Thursday morning.
Reading police, whose officers were present during the search, have referred all questions about the case to the district attorney's office.
This is the second significant investigation involving the DA and his detectives this week. They are still trying to solve the killing of 23-year-old Madison Marie Walb, whose body was found in Lower Heidelberg Township on Sunday. Authorities haven't said how she died, but they have ruled the case a homicide.
One of the people indicted as part of a federal corruption investigation centered around Reading City Hall has admitted to his role in the case.Read More »
