Ten charged with dealing heroin and cocaine in Pike County

Matthew Maloney

Criminal use of a communication facility is a felony of the 3rd degree punishable by up to 7 years in prison and a $15,000 fine.

District Attorney Tonkin said “the investigation and arrest will certainly curtail heroin and cocaine dealing in the Delaware/Dingman area and make the community a safer place. We also hope to solve additional crimes through these arrests, as many times drugs are associated with other criminal activity."
Tonkin thanked all the agencies who participated in the investigation and arrests, saying, "today citizens can feel proud of law enforcement in making our community safer.”

Anyone with information on drug trafficking in Pike County can call the District Attorney’s Office at 570/296-3482 and ask for the Detective Bureau. All calls will be kept confidential.
