EASTON, Pa. -

A man who sold heroin to a police informant and later involved a 17-year-old in another drug deal is in even more hot water after officers searched his home last month, officials said.

William Miranda Sr. is facing additional drug charges after police found 204 wax paper packets of heroin labeled "Blueprint" in a pair of boots under his bed and 20 grams of cocaine in his home at 189 Lachenour Ave., Easton, on Sept. 18, officials said.

Hundreds of unused wax paper bags, a box of baggies, a digital scale and a marijuana grinder were also found, they added.

The search was conducted after two packets of heroin stamped "Blueprint" were sold to a police operative by a 17-year-old male who had just come out of Miranda's home on Sept. 18, officials said.

Miranda also sold heroin to a police informant on Sept. 4, officials said.

Miranda, 39, was arraigned Wednesday on several charges, including criminal conspiracy and possession of a controlled substance with intent to deliver, and committed to the Northampton County Prison on $25,000 bail, according to court documents.

A preliminary hearing is set for 11 a.m. Nov. 2.
