An Indiana County man accused of having three bricks of heroin, cash and drug paraphernalia during a traffic stop in Kittanning will be charged in a Wednesday hearing in District Judge James Owens's court.

Police arrested Aaron Doyle Sr., 28, of Brush Creek Road, Homer City, when they allegedly found heroin, $3,860 and drug paraphernalia in the car he was driving when he was stopped on North Avenue on March 14.

Doyle is awaiting a hearing in the Armstrong County Court of Common Pleas. The hearing has not been scheduled. He remains in the Armstrong County Jail in lieu of $25,000 bond.

A passenger in his car, Brandon W. Shaffer, 28, of Reesdale Road, Adrian, waived his right to a preliminary hearing on drug charges stemming from the traffic stop.

Shaffer is also awaiting a preliminary hearing on Wednesday on attempted robbery charges for allegedly confessing to attempted robbery in the Honey Bear Convenience Store on North McKean Street, Kittanning, on March 9.

Shaffer is jailed in lieu of $25,000 bond.

Both Doyle and Shaffer were charged with felony counts of possession of a controlled substance with intent to manufacture or deliver and misdemeanor charges of possession of a controlled substance and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Shaffer was charged with a felony count of robbery, a misdemeanor charge of recklessly endangering another person and a summary charge of disorderly conduct related to the convenience store incident. Doyle was charged with driving with a suspended or revoked license.
