Four Arrested, Jailed on Drug Charges

Heroin and drug paraphernalia in a St. Marys home has led to the arrests of four people.

City police, the state attorney general’s office and the North Central Drug Task Force executed a search warrant at 131 Hemlock Street last night and found a large amount of heroin, along with the paraphernalia.

They charged 36-year-old Sherrod Duncan of Natrona Heights, 25-year-old Justin Weston of Homestead, and 24-year-olds Alex Cheatle and Theresa Sample, both of St. Marys, with possession of a controlled substance with intent to deliver, dealing with unlawful proceeds, and criminal use of a communication device.

Duncan and Weston are also each charged with tampering with evidence. Duncan is also charged with giving false ID to law enforcement. They are both jailed in lieu of $50,000 cash bail.

Sample and Cheatle are each also charged with endangering the welfare of a child. Cheatle was sent to Elk County Jail on a probation warrant. Sample is jailed in lieu of $25,000 cash bail.
