Husband And Wife Busted For Heroin

Posted by wlpo on July 31, 2009

Luke and Jennifer Raley were arrested by TRIDENT drug officials last night after a search warrant was done at their home on St. Paul Street. Detectives say they came after Luke Raley because he delivered heroin to an undercover informant.

While at the Raley’s house, Luke allegedly was found with 26 bags of heroin in his pocket while Jennifer supposedly was seen trying to hide heroin in a wash machine. A search of the wash machine allegedly turned up 212 bags of heroin and 54 tins of the drug. All told, drug officials say the Raley’s had 29 grams of heroin in their possession. TRIDENT officials think it’s the largest amount of packaged heroin ever found in the area.

Both were taken to the Bureau County Jail on charges of unlawful possession of controlled substance with the intent to deliver.
