LANCASTER – A month-long investigation into drug sales and counterfeiting in Lancaster ended Tuesday with the arrest of four suspects.
Allin Johnson, 44, James Carterboakye, 32, and Benjamin Petras, 32, were arrested on narcotics and counterfeiting charges, while 43-year-old Lisa Stephenson was arrested for selling drugs.
The four suspects were busted Tuesday afternoon (Jan. 29), when deputies tracked the counterfeit cash trail to a home in the 45100 Block of 15th Street West, according to a Lancaster Station press release.
Deputies also found several baggies of methamphetamine, cocaine and marijuana, along with scales and other items related to the sales of narcotics, the press release states.
The deputies arrested Johnson, Carterboakye, and Petras inside the home.
They also discovered that Petras, who lives in an apartment in the 43500 block of Kirkland Avenue, is on active parole for narcotics.
Deputies drove Petras to his apartment and conducted a “parole compliance” check. They found methamphetamine and psilocybin or “magic mushrooms.”
Lisa Stephenson was arrested inside the apartment and faces charges related to the sales of narcotics.
The operation was handled by deputies from Lancaster Station’s, “Lancaster Community Appreciation Program” (LANCAP) team.
