YORK -- A massive drug bust in York County ended with three people behind bars and facing drug charges, including delivery of heroin.  According to the York County District Attorney's office, police charged Junior Gonzalez, aka “Omi,” 36, of 2708 Hunt Club Drive, with delivery of heroin, possession with the intent to deliver heroin, and criminal conspiracy; Angel Barbosa, aka “Kiko," 31, and Julie Gonzalez-Morales, 32, both of 483 Salem Ave., with possession with the intent to deliver heroin and criminal conspiracy.

Gonzalez and Barboza operate the business known as J&J Auto Detailing Shop, 390 Chestnut St. There were three search warrants acted on in York County Wednesday related to this bust -- one at the detailing shop, another at the Hunt Club Drive home, and the third on Salem Avenue.

Police say in the Salem Avenue home they found bulk heroin and tens of thousands of bags used to deliver heroin. There were also scales and other drug equipment, according to authorities.

The investigation was eight months long, and spun off from Operation Sunrise back in February. That's when police and drug enforcement officers targeted every level of user and dealer in York in the early hours.

More than 100 warrants were issued on Feb. 6.  Dwight Shabazz lives on Hunt Club Road near Gonzalez. He described Gonzalez as a good neighbor.

"I'm shocked, really. He was a good guy, a good detailer," Shabazz said.Massive heroin bust in York County, three arrested
