Delaware County Arrest made In Heroin Trafficking Case
A Sidney man held in the Delaware County Correctional Facility since his arrest last month was arrested by Delaware County Sheriff's Investigators on Wednesday afternoon on a Sealed Grand Jury Indictment Warrant. 38 year old Richard Swislosky was arrested by Delaware County Sheriff's Office Investigators on October 8th and charged with 3rd degree Criminal Possession of a Controlled Substance and first degree Criminal Possession of a forged Instrument concluding a month long investigation that focused on heroin trafficking in and around the Village of Sidney and City of Oneonta. Last week a Delaware County Grand Jury indicted Swislosky on those charges and two additional class B felony charges of 3rd degree Criminal Sale of a Controlled Substance in relation to his alleged sales of heroin in the Sidney area prior to his October 8th arrest. Swislosky was arraigned on the indictment in Delaware County Court and remanded to the Delaware County Correctional Facility in lieu of $100,000 cash bail pending further court action.
