An alleged heroin dealer in the Hudson Valley was arrested following an undercover operation.

Richard McInturff, 28, of Port Jervis was charged with three felony counts of criminal possession of a controlled substance with intent to sell.

The arrest comes after a month-long investigation into heroin sales in the area of Jersey Avenue in Port Jervis, police say.

The arrest is the result of an undercover surveillance operation on Jersey Avenue where McInturff was allegedly found in possession of ten individual packets containing a mixture of heroin and fentanyl with the intent to sell.

Police continued their investigation and executed a court-ordered search warrant at McInturff's home and found 170 packets containing a mixture of heroin and fentanyl, packaging materials and a quantity of United States currency, police say.

The Port Jervis man was remanded to Orange County Jail in lieu of $50,000 bail pending Grand Jury evaluation.
