Feliciano-Rivera faces one count each of possession with intent to deliver cocaine and conspiracy – possession with intent to deliver cocaine, according to court documents.

“I am thankful to Attorney General Josh Shapiro and his team who have made it a priority to provide manpower and resources to law enforcement in York County,” said District Attorney Dave Sunday. “These additional resources continue to make a positive impact in our community and I am forever grateful.”

Attorney General Shapiro added, “Pennsylvania communities deserve to be free from the threat of illegal drugs and guns on their streets. I’m proud to work with the District Attorney’s Office and York City Police to hold those accountable who violate our drug and firearm laws and keep the people of York City safe.”
