Another indictment revealed

ROMNEY – Ronald Brown Jr. has been charged with delivery of a controlled substance, heroin, by the Hampshire County grand jury.

The grand jury handed up 12 indictments on Sept. 4, but Brown’s and 2 others were sealed because the defendants weren’t in custody. Brown has been arrested so his indictment details have been made public.

The charging documents say that on Oct. 19 last year, he sold 4 individual packs of heroin to a confidential informant of the State Police for $100.

Also: If you’re superstitious look out for this Friday. It’s the 1st Friday the 13th of 2019; the 2nd one occurs in December… The bridge near Smokey Hollow Road on U.S. 50 is back in operation. Work was completed last week.
