A local drug dealer was found guilty of funneling over $16,000 worth of heroin into the Hudson Valley. Many of the sales took place near children.

 

Jason Brewster of Poughkeepsie pleaded guilty to criminal sale of a controlled substance, a felony.

During an undercover investigation, Brewster sold over 260 grams of heroin to an informant. The street value of the drugs is over $16,000, officials say.

Between Oct. 2015 and Feb. 2016, Brewster made six sales to the informant. He often sold heroin out of his home, with his children at the home, and around Poughkeeepise, including near the S.F.B. Morse Magnet School.

“Deadly drug traffickers like Jason Brewster fuel and exploit the opioid epidemic that’s tearing families apart across New York,” Attorney General Eric Schneiderman said.

Brewster was arrested in May following a 15-month manhunt. He is expected to be sentenced to 10 years in prison.
