HONESDALE -- Wayne County District Attorney Patrick Robinson said Hayden Tyson, 23, was arrested in April 2-17 as result of a PA Office of Attorney general undercover investigation, in which Tyson and a co-deefendent conspired to sell 10 packet of heroin to an confidential information for $100.
Robinson said, "“Here again we have a Defendant traveling to Patterson, N.J. on a daily basis, purchasing 100 to 200 bags of heroin each day, and then selling the heroin to ten or eleven people in our community each day. The Defendant claims he sold the heroin to support his own 50 bag per day addiction.”
Tyson was sentenced to 11.5 to 36 months in county prison on Thursday by Senior Judge Raymond Hamill on the felony conspiracy charge.
Robinson said, "“This is an intolerable situation which must be addressed through a combination of education, treatment, and law enforcement. As District Attorney I can assure the community that the Wayne County Drug Task Force and other Law Enforcement Agencies will continue to investigate, arrest, prosecute, and incarcerate these low level drug dealers to the best of our ability. Without the help of the public this sad form of suicide and distribution of poison will continue unabated.”
