QUAKERTOWN, Pa. - A 25-year-old Montgomery County man is in custody after police say they saw him selling heroin in a shopping center parking lot.
Quakertown police arrested Justin Smith of the 1600 block of Upper Ridge Road in Pennsburg Tuesday night.
Police used a confidential informant to contact Smith to buy heroin around 9:15 p.m.
According to court papers, police were familiar with Smith since they'd arrested him before for selling heroin.
The informant met Smith in the parking lot of the Giant Food Store in the Plaza Shopping Center at 1465 W. Broad Street in Quakertown later Tuesday, with marked money, police said.
After the buy, police arrested Smith in the parking lot.
As police took Smith into custody, they said a 14-bag bundle of blue waxy baggies stamped 'Just Do It' fell out of the cuff of his pants.
They also found $1,264 in Smith's possession, including the marked money.
Police said once Smith was in custody, he told them he sold heroin on a daily basis to about 10 different customers and admitted to selling heroin to the police informant.
