BUCKS COUNTY COURTS — Charles Shaw, a 44-year-old Philadelphia man stopped June 15 on Route 113 in Bedminster had two large bags of drugs containing 590 bags of suspected heroin, seven bags of suspected crystal methamphetamine, seven bags of cocaine, 10 suspected oxycodone pills and 11 buprenorphine pills, the Bucks County District Attorney's Office said on its crimewatchpa.com page.
"During the first two weeks of June, investigators from the Bedminster Township Police Department and Bucks County Detectives Strike Force conducted controlled purchases of suspected heroin from Shaw, who detectives learned had been selling heroin, methamphetamine and cocaine throughout Bucks County. Forty bags of heroin were seized as a result of the purchases," the release said.
The investigators also found Shaw had been using a home in the 3600 block of Bedminster Road to package drugs, the DA's office said.
Shaw was believed to have just left the residence when he was stopped, the release said.
While taking him into custody, detectives noticed a bulge in the crotch area of Shaw's pants and found the suspected drugs there, the release said.
A preliminary arraignment on multiple counts of possession with intent to deliver a controlled substance and related charges was held before Magisterial District Judge Michael Gallagher, Bensalem, and Shaw was taken to Bucks County Correctional Facility with bail set at 10 percent of $200,000, online court information shows. A preliminary hearing is scheduled for July 15 before Magisterial District Judge Gary Gambardella, Ottsville, the information shows.
Plumstead Township Police, Tinicum Township Police, Falls Township Police and Hilltown Township Police assisted in the investigation, the DA's office said.
