New Eagle man jailed on drug charges

A New Eagle man was arrested after he allegedly sold heroin in the parking lot of the 7-Eleven 11 p.m. Tuesday night.

Joshua Jenkins, 24, of 437 Third Ave., was charged by Monongahela police with possession with intent to deliver heroin, possession of suspected heroin and possession of drug paraphernalia.

He was arraigned before Magisterial District Judge Mark Wilson and sent to the Washington County Correctional Facility in lieu of $25,000 bond.

Police Chief Brian Tempest said Monongahela officers observed Jenkins approach a woman, and hand her suspected heroin in exchange for money.

Three stamp bags of suspected heroin were found in Jenkins' front pocket and two more in his back pocket, Tempest said.

The woman, whom police did not identify, had one stamp bag of heroin matching markings of those found on Jenkins, said Tempest.

Monongahela police were assisted by members of the Washington County District Attorneys Drug Task Force.
