READING, Pa. - Seven more people have been identified as suspects in a multi-million dollar drug operation that was busted by law enforcement authorities over the summer.
Two of those people -- Eliot Lopez, 40, of Reading, and Stephanie Zahariadis, 30, of Exeter Township -- remained at large Friday, according to detectives with the Berks County district attorney's office and Pennsylvania State Police.
The others -- Eddie Ferrer, 42; Coralys Lopez, 29; Xavier Soto-Perez, 29; Shan Haynes-Ali, 29; and Lewis Lembric, 26 -- have been apprehended.
The last four suspects were already in the Berks County Jail on unrelated charges.
A six-month investigation, dubbed "Operation Last Hurrah," ended in August with more than 100 state and local law enforcement authorities fanning out across Berks County with dozens of arrest and search warrants.
The organization, officials said, was responsible for distributing more than $10 million worth of drugs, including heroin, fentanyl, methamphetamine, crack cocaine, and powder cocaine, while it was being investigated.
Authorities said they also seized nine vehicles, more than $200,000 in cash, and 21 guns, during their searches of properties in and around Reading.
