Three people have been busted in connection with selling heroin in a school zone in Reading.

Heroin was being sold at a house in the 400 block of Orange Street, said Berks County detectives, who arrested Jose Perez-Guevarez, Pablo Santiago-Santiago and Melinda Marrero, following a raid of their home.

Authorities said they seized more than 230 packets of heroin.


The house is near Amanda Stout Elementary and Southern Middle schools.
