During their arrest, $4,730 was seized, along with an Audi station wagon belonging to Bernabel that was used to transport the drugs. Also seized were 30 baggies of heroin and one ounce of cocaine. Both men were charged with delivery and possession with intent to deliver heroin and cocaine, criminal use of a communication facility, dealing in proceeds of unlawful activities, and criminal conspiracy.
