BATH, Pa. - A drug sting in Northampton County nabbed two men who were caught dealing heroin at a convenience store in Bath, according to authorities.

The arrests were made around 3:15 p.m. Saturday at the A-Plus Mini Market at Main and Walnut streets.

Colonial Regional Police, who were assisted by the Northampton County Drug Task Force and Nazareth Police, said two Carbon County men were in the process of selling 40 packets of heroin for $400 to a confidential informant.

The suspects, 23-year-old Michael Olk and 26-year-old Yessy Rivera, were charged with possession of heroin and delivery of heroin.

Police said they seized more than $3,500 in cash during the sting. A search of the vehicle uncovered an additional 176 packets of heroin valued at $1,760, along with a small amount of marijuana, according to police.

Olk and Rivera were sent to Northampton County Prison after failing to post bail.
