New York State Police and the Vestal Police say a two month-long investigation into the sale of heroin in Broome County has led to the arrest of the owner of a Binghamton clothing and cellular phone store and another Binghamton man. 

37 year old Rashid Imhotep, who owns Epic Couture Clothing and Cellular Phone Store on Glenwood Avenue, and 44 year old Nataniel Williams are each charged with two counts of criminal possession of a controlled substance, two counts of criminally using drug paraphernalia and Imhotep was also charged with resisting arrest when he jumped out of a window at William’s home and tried to run away.

New York State Police say Imhotep struggled with officers placing him under arrest.

Officials say at Williams’ Tudor Street home they seized about three and a half ounces of pure heroin and over 800 glassine envelopes containing heroin ready for sale. 

Officials say the heroin had an estimate street value of between $50,000 and $80,000.

Also seized were packaging materials, grinders, scales and other items associated with the processing and sale of heroin.

At Epic Couture Clothing, police found a small amount of marijuana and business records.

Imhotep and Williams were sent to the Broome County Jail without bail. 

Endicott Police, The Broome County Special Investigations Task Force and the United States Drug Enforcement Administration also participated in the investigation.

Authorities say the investigation is continuing and further charges may be pending.
