The drug unit and York County sheriff’s deputies searched a home on the 100 block of Creekstone Lane in York about 5:15 p.m. Monday, according to a sheriff’s report. Inside, they found 32-year-old Abel Hernandez and 20-year-old Leah Hernandez in possession of about 130 grams of marijuana, in addition to scales and packaging materials.

Abel Hernandez and Leah Hernandez were trafficking about 11 “dose units” of MDMA, also known as ecstasy or “Molly,” the report states. Each was charged with trafficking MDMA and possession with intent to distribute.
