Search of Allentown apartment turns up crack, heroin and more

Drugs valued at more than $12,000

ALLENTOWN, Pa. - An Allentown pair is facing a host of drug and conspiracy charges after authorities allegedly found drugs with a street value of more than $12,000 in their Gordon Street apartment.

The Allentown Police Department’s vice unit on Monday morning executed a search warrant on an apartment in the 600 block of Gordon Street belonging to Christopher Berry and Christina Jimenez, according to court records.

Inside the apartment, authorities seized:

  • 45 grams of crack with a street value of $2,025;
  • 120 grams of cocaine with a street value of $5,400;
  • 6 grams of heroin with a street value of $420;
  • 310 grams of pot with a street value of $620, and;
  • 126 30 mg oxycodone tablets with a street value of $3,780.

Investigators said they also found $5,905 in cash and a .38 Smith & Wesson revolver along with packaging materials, rubber bands, empty pill capsules, masks, cutting agents and sifters, according to records.

Police said Berry is a convicted felon currently on parole, making it illegal for him to possess a gun. Court records do not indicate the crimes for which he is currently on parole.

Authorities charged the 41-year-old Berry and the 46-year-old Jimenez with four felony counts each of conspiracy and possession with intent to deliver. Berry also faces a single felony count of illegal possession of a firearm.

District Judge Donna Butler arraigned the pair Monday night, setting bail for each at $200,000. After failing to post bail, they were sent to Lehigh County Jail to await preliminary hearings scheduled for April 23.
