Two young Phoenixville parents are marking the milestones in their baby's life from behind bars while they await a preliminary hearing on Thursday.
Katrina Perez, 20, and John A. Lasorda, 21, of Bridge Street in Phoenixville, are accused of selling heroin and marijuana to undercover police officers. Lasorda is charged with selling drugs on multiple occasions, including Valentine's Day.
According to court documents filed in the case, Phoenixville Police sold drugs to Lasorda on four dates in January and February of this year. According to an affidavit of probable cause filed in the case, Katrina Perez was present on one of those occasions on February 5. Police say that on February 5 the couple sold heroin to an undercover police officer and that the "defendant's infant son was present."
Police charge Lasorda with selling heroin and/or marijuana to undercover officers and a police informant on three additional dates, including Valentine's Day. In an affidavit of probable cause, police say the baby boy was present for two of the sales (including the alleged sale on February 5).
Katrina Perez is being held in Chester County Prison in lieu of 10 percent of $10,000 bail.
John Lasorda is being held in Chester County Prison in lieu of $3,500 straight cash bail.
They are due to appear for a preliminary hearing in the case Thursday morning in Phoenixville. District Court 15-2-01 is a short walk from where police say the drug deals went down in a Bridge Street apartment.
