CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -

A Cincinnati man was arrested Monday by the Clermont County Narcotics Unit for the distribution of heroin in the Village of New Richmond and surrounding areas. 

According to investigators, Charles R. Crossty, 34, was charged with one count of trafficking in heroin, a felony of the fourth degree. 

Officials said they finished a three month long investigation into Crossty and identified him as the main supplier of heroin to the Village of New Richmond. 

Clermont County Narcotics agents worked in conjunction with the Cincinnati Police Department's gang enforcement squad in intercepting 25 grams of heroin and 20 grams of crack cocaine, which Crossty reportedly intended for distribution. 

Crossty was taken into custody without incident in the 2850 block of River Road in Cincinnati, according to officials. 

The estimated street value of the seized drugs were reported at $3,750 worth of heroin and $1,700 worth of crack cocaine. 

“The resourcefulness of the Narcotics Unit prevented an additional 45 grams of illegal narcotics from reaching the citizens of New Richmond," stated Clermont County Chief Deputy Leahy. "This investigation was handled with a sense of urgency once Crossty was identified by numerous tips from the community as the main supplier of heroin to the Village of New Richmond.”  

Charles R. Crossty is currently being held at the Clermont County Jail on a $250,000 bond and is scheduled to appear in Clermont County Municipal Court Tuesday.
