Indiana police say man dealing heroin
Indiana police arrested a suspected drug dealer who they say had 335 bags of heroin in the car he was driving last month when police seized it in the borough's downtown business district.
Djuan O. Williams, 34, whose last known address was Tarentum, had been dealing heroin in the Indiana area for 24 hours before he was arrested on Jan. 23, Indiana police said in the affidavit filed against him.
After police seized the car Williams was driving from where it was parked along Philadelphia Street, they allegedly found 297 bags of heroin — stamped with the phrase “You're Invited” — inside the glove compartment. Thirty-eight bags of heroin, most labeled “Enyce,” were found in a black jacket, police said. A black bookbag contained drug paraphernalia, police said.
The car Williams had been driving was registered to a woman at the same Tarentum address, police said.
Williams was arrested at Wolfendale's bar on Philadelphia Street on a warrant issued on charges of receiving stolen firearms. He had $1,093 in his trousers pockets.
Williams was charged on Wednesday with possession and possession with intent to deliver heroin, possession of a small amount of marijuana and drug paraphernalia. He was arraigned before Indiana District Judge Guy Haberl and placed in the Indiana County Jail in lieu of $25,000 bond.
Williams is scheduled for a preliminary hearing before Haberl on Thursday.
