Anthony G. Happel, 27, of Mertztown, was arrested Monday night in the store at 2601 MacArthur Road, police said. Happel is charged with possession with intent to deliver meth, possession of meth and heroin, and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Happel was sent to Lehigh County Jail in lieu of $50,000 bail.

Store employees called police at 6:56 p.m. after seeing Happel go into the store’s bathroom, crouch on the floor of a stall and pull out a scale and an unknown substance, police say. A manager told police he saw Happel crouched on the floor of a stall and heard snorting noises, police said.

When township police got to the store, they found Happel walking with another man not identified in court papers. Police said Happel was sweating profusely, his eyes were rapidly moving side to side and he appeared to be shaking, according to court records.

Police searched Happel and found a scale in his sweatshirt pocket, as well as three bags of methamphetamine (13.3 grams, 4.2 grams, and 3.3 grams) and six packets of heroin, court records say.

During an interview with a Lehigh County Drug Task Force detective, Happel admitted the two smaller bags of methamphetamine were for sale, police said.
