LANCASTER COUNTY, Pa.– A Lancaster man will serve up to 30 years in prison for his role in a large scale fentanyl/heroin operation.

The street value of that amount of heroin is about $50,000, according to detectives.

Police were able to determine that Rivera was involved in the drug trafficking to Lancaster from New Jersey, and was convicted at trial of felony conspiracy.

Due to Rivera being on parole at the time of the crimes, a judge has recommended additional penalties be added to his sentence.
