September 22, 2017 - 5:14 am

A man wanted on drug charges in Hazleton is now in custody. Hazleton Police arrested Jose Rodreguez-Medrano yesterday afternoon. He was wanted after a search warrant was executed at an apartment on Alter Street earlier this month for what police say were controlled buys of heroin/fentanyl and crack cocaine there. Rodrequez-Medrano took off and had been on the run since. A tip led police to the 26 year old taken into custody along West Maple Street. He now faces felony drug charges and is in the Luzerne County Prison.
