Two charged following drug raid


Two people are facing charges following a drug raid in Easton.

Police say they had been watching the home at 679 Bushkill Street for drug and gang activity over the past several months.

Around 6 a.m. Friday, the Easton Police Special Response Unit and Vice Unit executed a search warrantand charged two people with drug possession.


Barbara McNeil, 31, is facing possession of a controlled substance charge and a delivery of heroin charge relating to a previous delivery made to undercover detectives.

Sean Bookman, 24, faces possession of a small amount of marijuana.

Police say there were six kids under the age of 16 inside the home at the time of the raid. They were turned over to the custody of family members.

Investigators were also hoping to get more information about a shooting that happened last month in the 700 block of Ferry Street.

In that incident, a 21-year-old man was shot, but he survived.
