Heroin Arrests


Lacey Nicole Ray, age 28, and Robert Lee Miller, age 59, both of Memorial Park Road, Lancaster, were arrested last Thursday, May 18, 2017, and charged with Possession with Intent to Distribute Heroin.  Agents of the Lancaster County Sheriff’s Office Drug Task Force received information that heroin was present in the apartment shared by Ray and Miller on Memorial Park Road.  A search warrant was obtained, and drug agents and members of the SWAT team made entry into the home early Thursday morning.  Ray and Miller were in bed, and a third person who was not charged was in the kitchen.  All three were detained while the home was searched.  Agents found 3.4 grams of suspected heroin in the bed and $541.00 in Miller’s wallet in the bedroom.  Drug packaging materials were found in the kitchen, and a bottle of Erythromycin prescribed to a person not present in the home was found in Miller’s car on the property. 


            Ray was charged with Possession with Intent to Distribute Heroin.  She was also charged with Distribution of Heroin for a transaction that occurred on a date prior to the execution of the search warrant.  Miller was charged with Possession with Intent to Distribute Heroin and Possession of a Prescription Drug without a Prescription.  Both Ray and Miller were released from the Lancaster County Detention Center May 18.  Ray posted a $25,000.00 surety bond, and Miller posted a $15,000.00 surety bond.  Attached are photographs of Ray and Miller.


            “This operation was conducted without any complications,” said Sheriff Barry Faile.  “Miller has served time for drug offenses and has a drug indictment pending.  We are a little disappointed he made bond so quickly, but we hope his case makes its way before the court soon.”
