A man who sold heroin to a police informant outside an automotive supplies store two months ago led investigators to more of the drug and two guns, officials said.

Alvin I. Fantauzzi-Perez provided a written statement to police on Wednesday that he had more heroin in his home at 1308 Eastwood Road, Bethlehem, as well as two semi-automatic pistols, officials said.

A search of the home turned up 320 wax packets of heroin, a Taurus 9mm pistol, a Springfield XD 40 caliber pistol and gang paraphernalia, officials said.


Fantauzzi-Perez sold the heroin to the informant in a parking lot of an automotive supplies store in the 1800 block of Stefko Boulevard in Bethlehem on May 29, officials said.

Fantauzzi-Perez, 21, was arraigned on drug possession charges and committed to the Northampton County Prison on $50,000 bail, according to court documents.

A preliminary hearing is set for 9 a.m. July 12.
