St. Lawrence County grand jury indicts four men on heroin charges.


CANTON — The four men arrested on heroin charges last month by St. Lawrence County Drug Task Force have been indicted by a grand jury Tuesday.

Christopher J. Sharp, 23, of 1 Ann St., Norfolk; Allen J. Oshier, 30, of 94 Lincoln Ave., Waddington; Christopher A. Lopez, 23, of 2705 Summit St., Union City, N.J.; and Christopher J. Hughes, 32, of 81 Grantville Road, Norfolk, were all charged with felony third-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance.

The four men were arrested on Oct. 9 following a traffic stop on Route 36 in the town of Louisville where a sheriff’s department K-9 unit and deputies said a subsequent free air sniff of the vehicle’s exterior led to the discovery of 21 packets of heroin.

They were arraigned by Pierrepont Town Justice Robert G. Camp and sent to the St. Lawrence County jail, Canton.

Mr. Sharp was released on $5,000 cash bail, Mr. Oshier and Mr. Hughes were released on a court order by Justice Camp.

Mr. Lopez, who is also indicted on an unrelated drug charge that alleges he was in possession of both heroin and cocaine with the intent to sell in the village of Massena, is facing a felony charge of third-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance. He is being held in county jail in lieu of $20,000 cash or $40,000 bond.
