The Morning Call - - NEWS - BY DANIEL PA­TRICK SHEE­HAN

Eas­ton po­lice served simultaneo­us drug search war­rants at two res­i­dences Fri­day morn­ing, ar­rest­ing three peo­ple on a host of charges.

The 6 a.m. raids hap­pened on Ferry Street and Val­ley Street, ac­cord­ing to a news re­lease from Lt. Matthew Ger­ould.

The depart­ment’s spe­cial re­sponse team ex­e­cuted the war­rant at 689 Ferry St. and took two res­i­dents of a first-floor apart­ment into cus­tody: Gis­selle Yetta, 26, and Jes­sica Griess, 25.

Yetta was al­ready wanted for de­liv­ery of heroin and crim­i­nal use of a com­mu­ni­ca­tion de­vice, the re­lease said. Fur­ther charges stem­ming from the raid in­clude pos­ses­sion with in­tent to de­liver heroin and pos­ses­sion of drug para­pher­na­lia.

Greiss faces charges of pos­ses­sion of heroin and pos­ses­sion of drug para­pher­na­lia.

Po­lice said heroin and drug para­pher­na­lia con­sis­tent with heroin sales were re­cov­ered from the res­i­dence and a ve­hi­cle was seized.

At 819 Val­ley St., res­i­dent Devin Moore Sr., 42, was charged with pos­ses­sion with in­tent to de­liver co­caine and mar­i­juana, pos­ses­sion of drug para­pher­na­lia and il­le­gal pos­ses­sion of a firearm by a con­victed felon.

That raid was based on com­plaints from neigh­bors. Moore was also wanted on a war­rant for de­liv­ery of crack co­caine.

Co­caine, mar­i­juana, a large amount of U.S. cur­rency and a .380 cal­iber semi-au­to­matic hand­gun were re­cov­ered from Moore’s res­i­dence, along with para­pher­na­lia con­sis­tent with man­u­fac­tur­ing crack co­caine, the re­lease said.

The city’s code en­force­ment depart­ment is eval­u­at­ing the prop­erty due to the con­di­tions in­side and out­side.
