York, PA

On Thursday, January 24, the Hellam Township Police Department and the York County Drug Task Force conducted an investigation where they arrested Michael Nicholson, age 31, of Wrightsville.

The York County District Attorney’s Office says during the evening hours of January 24, police learned that Nicholson would be arriving at a residence in the 5300 block of E. Market St., in Hellam Township to deliver a quantity of heroin.

According to authorities Police officers set up a surveillance detail and upon Nicholson’s arrival at that residence they approached him, and found him to be in possession of 30 grams of heroin. Nicholson then consented to a search of both his vehicle and residence in Hellam Township, which produced an additional 50 grams of heroin the District Attorney’s office said.

According to authorities throughout the investigation, investigators were able to develop information detailing Nicholson’s distribution of heroin in both York and Lancaster Counties. District Attorney Dave Sunday said, “I applaud the efforts of the Hellam Township Police Department and the York County Drug Task Force. As we continue to fight this deadly epidemic, taking 80 grams of heroin off our streets will likely save lives.”

Nicholson was charged by Hellam Township Police with one count of Possession with the Intent to Deliver Heroin and committed to the York County Prison unable to make bail.
