Sentencing postponed for man caught with heroin and meth in York County

YORK – Issac Z. Franco, a resident of Las Vegas, Nevada, was scheduled to be sentenced this past week in York County District in a case where he was caught with heroin, methamphetamine and prescription drugs. However, sentencing was rescheduled for December.

This case began in the middle of the night when a deputy with the York County Sheriff’s Department stopped Franco’s vehicle for speeding on Interstate 80. Due to inconsistencies with the stories about Franco’s trip to Minneapolis, the very large amount of luggage in the vehicle, Franco’s criminal history involving dangerous drugs and other signs of illegal activity, the deputy asked for permission to search the vehicle. Franco gave his consent, according to court documents, but then later refused.

A county canine was brought to the scene, with the dog alerting to the presence of illegal narcotics. A probable cause search of the vehicle then followed. During that search, deputies found 16 Carisoprodol pills; 6.1 grams of methamphetamine; 5.9 grams of heroin; and a clear glass pipe and two bongs containing heroin residue.

Franco has pleaded no contest to one count of possession of a controlled substance, a Class 4 felony. He is facing a possible maximum sentence of two years in prison with 12 months of post-release supervision.
