READING, Pa. -

Two men remain at large following a drug raid in a heroin-plagued area of northeastern Berks County.

Detectives with the Berks County district attorney's office and the Pennsylvania State Police continue their search for Dylan Lesher and Brett Brugger.

Lesher, 21, of Mertztown, and Brugger, 20, of Topton, are two of 12 people who were sought Monday as part of a multi-agency investigation of drug activity in the Topton area.

The other 10 suspects were apprehended. All are charged with possession, possession with the intent to deliver, and delivery of heroin, cocaine and marijuana.

A 13th person was arrested on charges of heroin possession.

The investigation began, in part, as a result of five heroin overdose deaths in the Topton area in recent months, officials said.

Anyone with information that can help authorities locate Lesher and Brugger is asked to call Crime Alert Berks County at 877-373-9913. A cash reward is being offered for information that leads to their arrests.
