NEW CASTLE — Narcotics officers raided a home on the city’s Lower East Side Wednesday and seized a quantity of pure cocaine.

As a result, Nicole M. Robertson, 28, of 607 Countyline St. was arrested and faces drug-related charges.

District Attorney Joshua Lamancusa said agents from his office and the city police narcotics bureau served a sealed search warrant around 9 p.m. at Robertson’s house, based on results of undercover narcotics operations.

They confiscated a bag containing about 1.5 grams of pure heroin, plus 12 stamp bags weighing another 7 grams with the packaging. Lamancusa estimated the street value for the drugs at $500.

Three other adults who were in the house at the time were released after Robinson gave police a statement admitting her sole involvement with the cocaine.

She was arraigned by District Judge Melissa A. Amodie, who set her jail bond at $25,000.
