Bail Revoked For Vermont Man Who Allegedly Sold Heroin to Undercover Officer
A Vermont man had his bail revoked Tuesday, after allegedly selling heroin last week to an undercover police officer near the Big Y supermarket in North Adams.
The Berkshire Eagle reports Kurt Vosburgh, 54, who has a history of drug-related convictions, was arrested Friday by police, who were following up on a tip from a confidential informant.
Acting quickly, an officer tracked down Vosburgh near the retail plaza on Holden Street and purchased four bags of heroin for $40, according to the criminal complaint filed by North Adams Police Officer Joshua Zustra.
Shortly after the transfer and payment was made, officers confronted Vosburgh and arrested him.
He was found to be in possession of 24 additional bags of heroin.
Vosburgh pleaded not guilty in Northern Berkshire District Court on Tuesday to single counts of distributing a Class A drug and possession of a Class A drug, subsequent offense. Judge William Rota set bail at $1,000 cash, and Vosburgh is next scheduled to appear Monday for a pretrial hearing.
