3 arrested, 2 wanted in Hazleton after fentanyl distribution bust

A several month long investigation has led to a large-scale fentanyl distribution bust in Hazleton Tuesday morning.

Police say Hassan Harrell, 27, Sheaquante Marshall, 25, and Vanessa Zapotosky, 28, were arrested at a residence on South Woodwart Court.

Investigators revealed Marshall and Iquan Murray, 23, and William Green, 56, would distribute fentanyl from the home.

Harrell would reportedly speak to confidential informants to arrange the purchases.

Authorities say Zapotosky was taken into custody for outstanding warrants.

Several hundred bags of heroin was seized by law enforcement during the investigation.

Harrell and Marshall are charged with delivery of a controlled substance and conspiracy to deliver a controlled substance. They are currently at the Luzerne County Correctional Facility.

Court documents show Zapotosky lodged at the Schuylkill County Prison by county adult probation for active warrants.

Murray and Green are still wanted individuals. If anyone knows of their whereabouts, they're asked to contact 911.
