Police in Bucks County charged a man with dealing heroin after setting up a sting following a deadly overdose earlier this summer.
Lower Makefield Township Police narcotics officers arrested Victor Miller of Wood Street in nearby Trenton, New Jersey after setting up a buy at the Ace Motel on Lincoln Highway in Fairless Hills, Pennsylvania where the 22-year-old tried to sell undercover officers one brick (50 bags) of heroin for $260.
Police setup the sting after a 21-year-old Lower Makefield resident died from an overdose last month. The investigation into the death led to police targeting Miller who they say supplied the lethal dose.
Police said witnesses and informants thumbed Miller as a heroin dealer operating in Bucks County. They also said heroin that led to two non-deadly overdoses in Falls Township.
