Authorities said they charged three Lebanon people who worked in shifts to sell cocaine and heroin virtually around the clock from a home they had fortified against police.

The three were charged Thursday after the Lebanon County Drug Task Force raided the home at 1406 Willow Street, where police said they found 86 bags of heroin, about 20 bags of crack cocaine, powder cocaine and marijuana.

Authorities said the doors of the home had multiple locks and 2×4 wood braces to prevent police from making quick entry, as well as a surveillance system that monitored Willow Street and the front and rear doors.

The suspects were identified as Adelaida Gaston-Vazquez, 32; and Jose Rivera-Rivera, 29, both residents of the home; and Juan Rivera-Rivera, 23, of the 500 block of North 7th Street.

Each faces multiple counts including possession with the intent to deliver, possession of a controlled substance, and criminal conspiracy.

Jose Rivera-Rivera faces an additional count of fleeing and eluding police with a suspended license. Authorities said he fled from officers during the raid and remains at large.

Adelaida Gaston-Vazquez was sent to Lebanon County Prison on $800,000 bail. Juan Rivera-Rivera was being held on $500,000 bail.
