Dealer who fled police interview after being caught with 4 drugs gets state prison

A Lancaster man caught with heroin, cocaine, marijuana and Molly was sentenced to serve at least four years in state prison on Monday.

Israel Padilla pleaded guilty to felony counts of drug dealing, as well as a felony count of escape for fleeing an interview with detectives after a March 2 raid of his East New Street apartment. Padilla was caught with 234 grams of marijuana, 51.7 grams of cocaine, 28 grams of Molly and a gram of heroin, according to a news release from the Lancaster County district attorney’s office. 

While being questioned by detectives at the Lancaster police station, Padilla fled. He turned himself in with an attorney two days later, officials said.

Judge Dennis Reinaker ordered four to 10 years in state prison, acknowledging Assistant District Attorney Maria Cusick’s request for consecutive sentences for the drug dealing and escape, officials said.
