Heroin Dealer Gets 2.5 to 6 Years for 10th Conviction

September 7, 2016


FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Contact: David Keightly, 215.348.6342, dakeightly@buckscounty.org

A 33-year-old Norristown man who admitted spending his entire adult life dealing drugs was sentenced Tuesday by a Bucks County judge to serve two and one-half to six years in state prison.

Senior Judge John J. Rufe ordered that Andre Myers’ sentence run consecutive to a sentence of five and one-half to 11 years imposed for four drug convictions earlier this year in Montgomery County. His total sentence, therefore, is eight to 17 years.

Rufe’s sentence came after Myers pleaded guilty to multiple charges including possession with intent to deliver heroin and criminal use of a communications facility.

Assistant District Attorney David Keightly Jr., who prosecuted the Bucks County case, said Myers has now been convicted in 10 separate drug-dealing cases, most of them in Philadelphia.

“My mom raised me to be a better person than this,” Myers told Rufe. “I’m just hard-headed. I got caught up in the lifestyle.”

Myers was awaiting trial on several Montgomery County charges when he was charged with new drug offenses on Feb. 24 by Bensalem Township police.

The charges were filed several months after Myers was caught during a controlled narcotics buy at the Red Roof Inn on Lincoln Highway, where he delivered 181 bags of heroin to a room at the hotel. Police found an additional 73 bags of heroin in his pocket.

Myers told police that he had been selling drugs since his late teens, and that he was making $200 to $300 per day selling heroin and crack cocaine. He said he had been contacted by some young women interested in partying, and that he had gone to the Red Roof Inn intending to socialize with them, smoke some marijuana, and sell drugs. 

Myers told Rufe that he sold drugs to provide for his two children and his wife, who is expecting to deliver two more children “any day now.”

Rufe rebuked Myers for trying to claim that he had hurt no one while selling drugs, and for claiming to have wanted to support his family while looking to party with young women at the motel.

“I’m not a bad person,” Myers said. “When things go wrong, I break down fast. I need to do better with that.”

Approved for release by Robert James, Deputy District Attorney.

    What are the next ideas about the Montgomery County? I will work on my paper and need to write my college essay for college on Government. The task was to describe one county and its ideas for the future.

    food near me I think the criminals like him should be given the most severe punishment since he is not changing his attitude. It is really not acceptable to be involved in such a repeated number of similar cases. Authorities should consider these cases more seriously.

    There are different types of radar detectors with a different price range that it makes it hard to know which one is the best for you. Knowing some of the best features a radar detector should have will, however, make it easier for you to make the right decision.

    The five radar detectors discussed in this article are among the best on the market and they have a good radar detection range together with a pop system detection.
    They are among the best performance radar detectors with additional GPS navigation. As much as it is important to choose radar detectors that are of high quality, improved performance, and reliable, choosing one that is affordable is also a factor to consider. Read on to find out the best radar detector under 300 dollars.

    I was shocked to hear about the incident involving the Heroin Dealer Gets 2.5 to 6 Years for 10th Conviction. People like him should receive maximum punishment so that it will be example for those who are doing such crimes. best portable vaporizer
