Following the death of several area youth from heroin overdose in 2013, Parkesburg police took their game up a notch investigating and finally arresting two men in early July suspected of transporting and selling “fentanyl-laced heroin” around Parkesburg.
From Thursday’s Daily Local News:
Two men face felony drug-dealing charges after an investigation led to several seizures of what law enforcement suspects to be deadly fentanyl-laced heroin in recent weeks.
On Wednesday Parkesburg Police Chief Brian Sheller announced the arrests of two men after police seized more than 200 bags of suspected heroin between June 20 and July 4. Sheller said members of the Parkesburg Police Departments Drug Unit, with the assistance of the Chester County Detectives, intercepted several deliveries in the Parkesburg and Octorara regions.
Koran Johnson, 21, of Philadelphia, and Steven Cory Stanley, 25, of Atglen, were both arrested on felony charges of possession with the intent to deliver and related misdemeanor offenses, according to court records.
