Middletown police arrested a borough man on drug charges for his role in the sale of heroin laced with Fentanyl to a confidential informant.

According to arrest records filed by borough police, Stephen E. Odonnell, 54, of the 200 block of Hoffer Street, picked up the confidential informant at Midtown Plaza on East Main Street and drove the informant to 13th and Market streets in Harrisburg, where the drug sale was completed.

Odonnell then drove the informant back to the same location in Middletown and dropped him off.

The confidential informant was found in possession of three bundles (30 bags) of suspected heroin, which upon being tested by State Police was found to be heroin laced with Fentanyl.

Odonnell was arraigned before District Judge David Judy on July 24 and charged with criminal use of a communication facility, and manufacture, delivery, or possession with intent to manufacture or deliver.

Odonnell is listed as being in Dauphin County Prison on $10,000 bail.

His preliminary hearing is set for Aug. 6.
