Falls Twp. Heroin Dealer Sentenced to State Prison

October 19, 2016


FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Contact: Jonathan Long, 215.348.6351, jrlong@buckscounty.org

A man who bought heroin in Trenton and Philadelphia and sold it out of his apartment in Falls Township was sentenced this morning to serve 18 months to three years in state prison.

Steven Vickers, 28, was still on probation from two other criminal convictions when he was arrested in March on drug charges.

On March 9, Vickers had sold a small amount of heroin to a confidential informant in Fairless Hills. Afterward, two Bucks County Narcotics Task Force officers followed him to Trenton.

The officers saw Vickers make a street purchase from a drug supplier and then drive back to Bucks County, where the officers pulled him over. He admitted having heroin on him, and a search of his clothing yielded 17 bags of heroin, four suboxone strips and a hypodermic needle.

Officers then searched Vickers’ apartment on Kennedy Drive in Fairless Hills, finding more heroin and drug paraphernalia.

Vickers pleaded guilty today to charges including delivery of a controlled substance. He already had pleaded guilty last month to retail theft charges in an unrelated case.

Vickers’ criminal record also included multiple drunken-driving, drug and theft convictions, and he was sentenced in 2008 to serve two to four years for aggravated assault by motor vehicle while driving under the influence. He was still on probation for the aggravated assault case and a theft conviction at the time of his most recent arrest.

Vickers told Bucks County Judge Jeffrey L. Finley, who imposed the sentence, that he became addicted to painkillers after being seriously injured in an accidental shooting in 2013. He said he sold drugs to support his habit.

Given Vickers’ criminal record and his need for drug treatment, Finley said, there “is no reason to think that a county (prison) sentence would be appropriate.” He said the state prison system was better equipped to meet Vickers’ need for drug treatment.

Approved for release by Michele Kelly Walsh, Deputy District Attorney.

    Kidney Stones: Even people with kidney stone problems can drink as much red rooibos tea as they want as there is no oxalic acid in the beverage. Many times, people with kidney stones are discouraged from drinking too much tea of other varieties because of that exacerbating ingredient. Oxalic acid is a crystal-forming substance, so it can make the presence of calcium stones or other painful growths in the kidney even worse by making them larger. That won’t be a problem with rooibos tea!
