Preliminary hearings before magisterial district judges for all three accused heroin dealers arrested by the Armstrong County Narcotics Enforcement Taskforce were rescheduled until later this week.
Rashaan Campbell, 33 of McKees Rocks and Nichole Claypoole, 23 of Kittanning were arrested February 20 along Garretts Run Road in Manor Township after a controlled purchase of 50 stamp bags of heroin, which the confidential informant referred to as “breeze.”
Both are facing charges of possession of controlled substance, possession with intent to deliver, delivery of a controlled substance, criminal use of a communications facility and possession of drug paraphernalia.
Additional charges are anticipated for endangering the welfare of children in connection with the drug sales.
Claypoole was also wanted by authorities for outstanding warranted in Armstrong and Allegheny Counties in connection with drug trafficking.
Campbell and Claypoole’s preliminary hearings were rescheduled for tomorrow morning before District Magisterial Judge Gary DeComo.
The preliminary hearing for who police describe as a street-level heroin dealer in Kittanning and East Franklin Township is also scheduled for later this week.
Tiffany Fox, 20, was arrested at the end of February after County Detectives conducted two separate controlled-purchases of suspected heroin.
After a 9PM arraignment through District Magisterial Judge James Owen, Fox was incarcerated in the Armstrong County Jail on charges that include two counts of delivery of a controlled substance, two counts of possession with intent to deliver, two counts of delivery of drug paraphernalia and two counts of criminal use of a communication facility – with most of the charges felony in nature.
Fox’s preliminary hearing is scheduled for Wednesday morning before Judge Owen.
