HARRISBURG, Pa. (WHTM) – A Harrisburg man is facing charges after an undercover operation by police led them to $1,000 worth of heroin.

As part of the investigation, police say they purchased $60 of heroin from Junior Villanueva-Soler on Wednesday in front of his home at 448 Crescent St.

After obtaining a search warrant, officers recovered 100 bags of heroin, valued at $1,000, from Villanueva-Soler’s home. A handgun last owned by a gun shop was also found, police said.

Villanueva-Soler did not have permission to possess a handgun given his four previous convictions for drug deliveries.

He is facing several charges, including possession with intent to deliver heroin.
