Five arrested on heroin distribution charges
The Shenandoah County Sheriff’s Office arrested five people on Saturday after an investigation into two heroin overdoses in the area.
Deputies arrested Johnathan Dale Neice, 40, and Stacey Allen Marston, 41, both of Woodstock; Craig Allen Kidwell, 51, and Norma Lynda Kidwell, 53, both of Mount Jackson; and James Harold Lichliter, 50, of Maurertown, the Sheriff’s Office said in a news release. Neice was charged with two counts of heroin distribution, and Marston, Craig Kidwell and Norma Kidwell were each charged with one count of heroin distribution.
The investigation into the two heroin overdoses, one of which led to a death, led to the discovery of the five arrested on Saturday as a “chain of suppliers” in the overdoses, the release states.
All are being held without bond, the release states. Neice has a hearing scheduled for Jan. 19 in Shenandoah County General District Court, while Marston, Craig Kidwell and Norma Kidwell have hearings set for Jan. 26 in the same court.
