Greensburg man sentenced for heroin sales

Thursday, July 31, 2014, 6:57 p.m.
 

A Greensburg man was sentenced to serve up to 10 years in prison for selling heroin to a Jeannette woman who overdosed last year.

Travis Sturchio, 20, pleaded guilty Thursday to drug possession and delivery charges.

Police said Sturchio, a former McKeesport resident, was living at Hawksworth Garden Apartments in Greensburg in March 2013 when they found two bricks of heroin and more than $1,100 of cash in his home.

Police were investigating the overdose of an unnamed Jeannette woman, who survived, and suspected Sturchio was the man who sold her the drugs, according to court records.

Westmoreland County Judge Rita Hathaway ordered Sturchio to serve a mandatory sentence of five to 10 years in prison.
