A joint investigation in January between Bethlehem and Easton police resulted in a 42-year-old man being arrested in an early morning raid Thursday and the seizure of six different varieties of drugs, authorities say.
Easton’s tactical team — its Special Response Unit — helped vice officers from both cities enter 719 Pearl St. just before dawn and take Steven Allen Glanz into custody, police said.
Glanz had ”distributable” amounts of methamphetamine, marijuana/THC edibles, oxycodone and psilocybin mushrooms/psilocybin edibles in the attached double home in the alley just off North Seventh Street near North Oak Street, according to court papers and Bethlehem police Capt. Timothy Cooper. Police also found single bags of cocaine and of fentanyl, court papers say. Investigators recovered $2,433, Cooper said.
Bethlehem police received the search warrant, Cooper said, adding: “Some distribution occurred in Bethlehem and other surrounding Northampton County communities.”
The warrant was served Thursday morning with the assistance of Easton police, Cooper said. Glanz was detained without incident, Cooper said. Glanz was walked in handcuffs to a Bethlehem patrol vehicle on Pearl Street and driven from the scene.

An Easton K-9 assisted in the subsequent search of the home.
Glanz was arraigned late Thursday morning before District Judge Robert Weber in Downtown Easton on charges related to what police allegedly found in the Pearl Street home. Glanz was charged with drug possession with intent to deliver (four counts), drug possession (six counts) and possession of drug paraphernalia. A digital scale, numerous bags used to package narcotics and other containers were recovered, court papers say.
Glanz was sent to Northampton County Prison in lieu of $100,000 bail, with a preliminary hearing tentatively scheduled 10:30 a.m. March 2 in Central Court to determine if there is sufficient evidence to send the charges toward trial in county court.
All the drugs recovered tested positive during field testing and will be sent to the Pennsylvania State Police lab in Bethlehem for further testing, court papers say.

The Bethlehem detective who signed the court papers said he was working with the Northampton County Drug Task Force.
Cooper in a news release thanked the Northampton County District Attorney’s Office and Easton police for their help with the investigation.
