Suspected Pot Dealer Arrested in SouthSide

A South Bethlehem man was arrested on drug charges after police allegedly found evidence that he was dealing marijuana in his home, according to court records.

After waiving his Miranda rights, Corey J. Robinson, 21, of 817 Carlton Ave., admitted to police that he had been buying three pounds of pot every 10 days, dividing them into one-ounce bags, and selling them for $360 each, the arrest affidavit says. Robinson told police he has been making more than $1,000 every week, selling marijuana, court papers say.

In the search of his home, conducted on June 29, Bethlehem Police vice officers recovered marijuana, a digital scale, packaging materials and an owe sheet.

Robinson was formally charged Tuesday with possession with intent to deliver marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia. He was committed to Northampton County Prison in lieu of $5,000 bail following an arraignment before .
