A Charleroi man accused of having a large amount of suspected heroin is now facing new charges.

Shawn Patterson, 29, of 1005 Crest Ave., was charged with manufacture, delivery or possession with intent to manufacture or deliver, possession of a controlled substance and use/possession of drug paraphernalia. The charges were filed Wednesday by Washington County detectives at the Charleroi office of Magisterial District Judge Larry Hopkins.

The charges stem from Aug. 27 when detectives served a felony arrest warrant for Patterson at 1005 Crest Ave.

Prior to serving the warrant, detectives said Patterson was allegedly seen leaving in a silver Mitsubishi car. Detectives stopped the vehicle, where they found Patterson allegedly in possession of 10 bricks of suspected heroin and drug paraphernalia. The new charges stem from the vehicle stop. He faces a hearing on those charges at 9 a.m. Nov. 18 before Hopkins.

On Sept. 24, Patterson waived his right to a preliminary hearing before Hopkins on drug charges that resulted from an Aug. 15 search at 101 Luella Ave., Charleroi. Detectives went to that residence to arrest Patterson on a Westmoreland County bench warrant and allegedly seized 30 bricks of heroin and $5,586 in his possession.

Patterson is currently free on bail.
