Commonwealth v. A.E.

Commonwealth v. A.E.


Defendant was charged in Philadelphia with drug possession and intent to deliver a controlled substance and conspiracy. Police testified that they observed defendant and another male selling narcotics in the area of 100 Somerset Street in Philadelphia. Police stopped two alleged “buyers” and allegedly recovered crack cocaine and heroin. The defense successfully challenged the quality of the police surveillance, and argued that the drugs that were recovered could have been provided by other people in the area.
