            Crack Cocaine Arrests


           Two people were arrested for Trafficking Crack Cocaine late last week.  Agents of the Lancaster County Sheriff’s Office Drug Task Force developed information that crack cocaine was present in the home shared by J. C. Hall, age 78, and Faye Latasha Crawford, age 34, on Steel Hill Road in Van Wyck.  A search warrant was obtained and was executed by task force agents and members of the SWAT team early Friday morning, May 19, 2017.  Hall and Crawford were detained without incident, and the home and Crawford’s automobile were searched.  Agents found approximately 62 grams of suspected crack cocaine in the car and approximately five grams of suspected crack cocaine in the home.  Cash totaling $1,832.00 was seized from the bedroom of the home.


            Hall and Crawford were both charged with Trafficking Crack Cocaine 28-100 Grams.  Hall was also charged with Distribution of Crack Cocaine for a sale that occurred on a date prior to the execution of the search warrant.  Both remain in the Lancaster County Detention Center after the magistrate denied bond.  Photographs of Hall and Crawford are attached.


            According to Sheriff Barry Faile, “Hall has been known to us for a long time.  He has several drug convictions on his record and has served time in prison for drugs.  He also has a pending drug charge.  We hope this is the last time we have to deal with Hall for drug law violations.”
