Narcotics and Weapons Arrest
On December 21, 2022 an Abington officer was on patrol when he conducted a traffic stop of a vehicle displaying fraudulent registration. Additional investigation led to a search being conducted on the vehicle in question. Nearly one pound of marijuana was discovered inside of the vehicle, along with packaging consistent with narcotics distribution. The suspect, Luis Villacorta, was arrested and charged with narcotics violations, including Possession with Intent to Deliver a Controlled Substance.
Detectives conducted additional investigation that led them to an apartment in the 100 York apartment complex. A search warrant was obtained for the apartment and served on December 23, 2022. As a result of the search warrant, an additional one and a half pounds of marijuana, several thousand dollars in cash, and two handguns were seized.
Villacorta is a felon not to possess a firearm. This crime is continuing to be investigated, and is expected to result in additional charges.
CRIMINAL CHARGES, AND ANY DISCUSSION THEREFORE, ARE MERELY ALLEGATIONS AND ALL DEFENDANTS ARE PRESUMED INNOCENT UNTIL AND UNLESS PROVEN GUILTY.
