Drug Bust Goes Down at 7-Eleven, Police Say

A Philadelphia man was arrested after police say an informant set up the Friday night deal.

A 30-year-old Philadelphia man is in Chester County Prison after police say he sold heroin to an informant behind a Nutt Road convenience store last week.

On Friday at approximately 5 p.m., under the direction of Chester County Detectives and Phoenixville Police, an informant called Joseph Merrill McIntosh and asked for heroin. According to court documents, McIntosh agreed to sell the informant two bundles of heroin in exchange for cash.

A short while later, McIntosh pulled into the 7-Eleven parking lot on the 200 block of Nutt Road, where he had agreed to meet the customer, and called the informant's cell phone to let him know he was there, police say. At this point, uniformed and plain-clothed officers pulled alongside the defendant’s car and ordered him to get out.

McIntosh attempted to run, but police say he was captured immediately. Upon search of the defendant, police say they found more than an ounce of heroin, a cell phone, hundreds of dollars in cash, and additional drug paraphernalia.

McIntosh was arrested and charged with two felony counts of possession of narcotics with intent to deliver and additional misdemeanors. He was confined to Chester County Prison in lieu of $150,000 bail and has a preliminary hearing scheduled for Thursday.

A bundle is more than stack, but less than a sh*tload.

Just Because one drug dealers off the street doesn't mean anything another one will pop right up. Its not gonna stop...And all the cops really did was arrested a Philadelphia drug dealer. So now there's only 10,000 more. Now the taxpayers can pay for him to stay in jail.
