Published 12:40pm Wednesday, May 15, 2013

The Camp Hill Police Department arrested Lee Karon Chislom as a part of a two-month drug investigation.

Chislom, 66, was charged with six counts of distribution of a controlled substance and two counts of possession with the intent to distribute a controlled substance.

Authorities executed a search warrant of Chislom’s Camp Hill residence on Tuesday and seized nearly $1,000 in cash, small amounts of crack cocaine and marijuana, and a large amount of prescription medication.

Authorities also seized a Chevy Trailblazer at the residence.

CHPD Lt. Nathan White said police previously recovered more crack cocaine, marijuana and prescription medication throughout a nearly two-month investigation.

“We started getting information on it a couple months ago and over the course of the last two months we’ve made numerous buys from him at that location and elsewhere,” White said. “This is just a culmination of all that effort.”
