LANCASTER, Pa. (WHTM) – A city man will serve up to 10 years in prison for dealing heroin, cocaine, and marijuana.

Israel Padilla, 33, was ordered to serve 4-10 years after pleading guilty Monday in Lancaster County Court, District Attorney Craig Stedman’s office said.

Lancaster Drug Task Force detectives found a gram of heroin, 51.7 grams of cocaine, 234 grams of marijuana, and 28 grams of “Molly” in March when they raided Padilla’s apartment on East New Street.

Padilla also admitted to a felony count of escape. Authorities said he fled as he was being questioned by detectives at the Lancaster police station after the raid. He turned himself in two days later.
