WEST READING, Pa. -

A tip helped get $3,000 worth of heroin off the streets of West Reading, police said.

Officers stopped a heroin deal in the area of South 7th and Franklin streets Tuesday, police said.

That led police to a house in the 100 block of South 6th Avenue, where police said they found 300 packets of heroin and a small marijuana growing operation.

Margarita Rivera and Miguel Rosario have been charged with possession with the intent to manufacture or deliver.
