Drug Bust in Bradford

Three Bradford residents are in jail after a drug bust last night in the city.

Jennifer Heitzinger and Keith Murphy, both of 20 Rochester Street, have been charged with conspiracy to manufacture or deliver a controlled substance and were sent to McKean County Jail on $50,000 bail.

Randall Wayne Smith of Congress Street is in jail on $25,000 bail.

According to papers filed in District Judge Rich Luther's office, Heitzinger and Murphy conspired to sell crack cocaine to Smith on Congress Street.

Murphy was also wanted on a warrant from New York dated February 6. Members of the Bradford Police Emergency Response Team took him into custody based on the warrant. While in the residence, they found marijuana seeds and various pieces of drug paraphernalia, including scales.

Smith also allegedly sold crack cocaine to a confidential informant from the McKean County Drug Task Force on Chestnut Street.

All three are scheduled for hearings February 25 in front of District Judge Dom Cercone.

The key syllable is 'co' -- I'm very sure that safer pedestrian walkways near the locomotor-train crossing on Main Street is and has been the issue. Sometimes a barrier has been put up to shield pedestrians, at times only a few 2" x 4" wooden boards nailed together. Controlled-substance 'drops' in the PA/NY region are not uncommon, nor is telephone influence-networking.
