A man from Ross Township was arrested for allegedly selling heroin laced with fentanyl, a mixture which he then labeled “Theraflu.”
Ross Township and Springdale Township police coordinated with the Allegheny County Narcotics Team to make the arrest. Police sources indicate that the suspect, who is from Glenshaw, has been arrested and charged with multiple counts relating to the possession and sale of heroin and cocaine. Police allege that the man sold the drugs to undercover police agents on multiple occasions.
Heroin laced with fentanyl has been implicated in heroin overdose deaths in at least 14 states. The drug cocktail rose to prominence after the recent overdose death of actor Philip Seymour Hoffman.
The suspect in this latest case is alleged to have sold the drug mixture across the northern sections of Pittsburgh. For his part the man, who was arrested at his parent’s house, proclaimed his innocence. As he walked to a waiting police cruiser he was quoted as saying “Not guilty, I’ll tell you that.”
