Thousands of dollars worth of fentanyl and cocaine along with paraphernalia were seized from a 72-year-old man in a Berks County bust, authorities said.

During the investigation, undercover detectives bought cocaine from Torres-Hernandez several times, they said.

On Thursday, June 30, a search warrant executed at Torres-Hernandez's home turned up:

- Approximately 139 individually packaged gram sized bags of cocaine
- One “Hide-A-Can” containing approximately five grams of cocaine.

- One cocaine press
- Drug ledger
- Two digital scales
- Drug paraphernalia including packaging material and drug cutting agent
- A stock of ammunition
- Miscellaneous documents and identifications
- One cell phone and apartment keys
The drugs were valued at $88,000, authorities said.
Torres-Hernandez was charged with multiple drug offenses and taken to the Berks County Sheriff’s Department Central Processing Center where he was arraigned by a district judge.
His bail was set at $75,000.
Detectives say the investigation is ongoing.

Over the years, Wendy Williams has openly disclosed details to her fans about her ongoing health issues.
She struggles with many things including Graves' disease and hyperthyroidism, which she was diagnosed with 19 years ago.
The 58-year-old has also struggled with sobriety following her separation from her ex-husband, Kevin Hunter, which caused her to check into rehab in 2019.
In 2021, Wendy tested positive for Covid-19 and was then rushed to the hospital for "psychiatric services."
On November 8, 2021, the talk show host gave her fans an update on Instagram and revealed that she is "making progress."
"As everyone knows, my health has been a hot topic. I’m making progress but it’s just one of those things that’s taking longer than we expected," Wendy told her fans.
She was photographed outside her New York City apartment last year sat in a wheelchair with swollen legs.
Wendy is also still forbidden from accessing her $20million fortune amid a fierce legal war with her bank - meaning she can't pay her staff.BIZARRE BEHAVIOR
Wendy's continuing peculiar behavior has worried fans, after she made a string of outlandish comments during recent interviews.
Her close circle is also struggling to control her comments, as she bizarrely claimed she was married on August 2nd.
It came shortly after she appeared to be passed out next to a champagne glass at New York City's Louis Vuitton store.
She has been seen looking frighteningly thin and seemingly disoriented, despite previously trying to keep a low profile.
Sources close to her have suggested she is "not living in reality" and often "forgets who she is speaking to" in wake of her troubles.SAYING GOODBYE
In the end, an insider told The Sun that the popular TV personality even turned down an offer to film a farewell message for viewers that would have aired during her final episode.
The source also revealed that Wendy was asked to appear in the finale but refused.
"They were not doing it live, but asked Wendy for pre-taped video," the insider shared of the show's hope to get the host on her stage one last time.
"She still said no," the source said. "She’s not at peace with what happened. She's not happy with it.
"When Sherri officially starts, Wendy's name will not be mentioned again."
As for the new host, Sherri says she feels no pressure in replacing Wendy, and is ready to leave her predecessor in the past.Read More on The US Sun'SHOOK TO OUR CORE' Security stepped up at Salman Rushdie stabbing siteLOOK THIS WAY You have the eyes of an eagle if you can see straight lines in illusion
"I only feel pressure to go out there and be authentically Sherri," the comedienne told DailyMail.
"I put pressure on myself to make sure I’m bringing my best self each time I step onto that set. Making sure I can offer people one-hour of joy, laughter and inspiration is the only thing I’m worried about."5Sherri promises to keep her new show happy and positiveCredit: Fox 5Fans have been worried for Wendy as she exhibited some bizarre behaviorCredit: Splash 5Sherri's new show premieres in SeptemberCredit: Splash
