A Carroll Township man is accused of possessing 55 stamp bags of suspected heroin in his jeans and his car.

Daryl Demchak, 46, of 142 Wisebecker Lane, was arrested following a traffic stop 2:25 p.m. Tuesday on Gearing Road in Carroll Township.

Officer Ryan Lenzi said he observed Demchak driving near the intersection of Route 88 and Ginger Hill Road.

Lenzi said he knew Demchak had been charged several times with driving without a license, DUI-related.

Lenzi said Demchak had one knife in a sheath and another clipped to his pants.

Demchak admitted to having two hypodermic needles in his pants, Lenzi said.

The officer said Demchak had five bundles containing 45 stamp bags of heroin, marked “Blue Print” in his pants.

Lenzi said that inside the car, he found another bundle containing 10 stamp bags of suspected heroin in a hollowed-out cigarette pack.

Demchak admitted to consuming alcoholic beverages while in the vehicle, Lenzi said.

Demchak was taken to the Westmoreland County Prison in Hempfield Township because of outstanding warrants in that county.

Carroll Township police charged Demchak with six counts each of possession with intent to deliver a controlled substance and possession of a controlled substance, four counts of possession of drug paraphernalia and one count each of driving while operating privilege suspended, DUI-related, and restrictions on alcoholic beverages.
