— Three Dingman residents were arrested Monday for distributing heroin, Pike County District Attorney Raymond Tonkin announced.

A two-week investigation by the Pike County District Attorney’s Office led to the arrest of Ernest Broadwell, 54, Forest Decker, 20, and Kimberly Decker, 55.

The Pike County Detective Bureau had obtained a search warrant for a residence at 102 Garfield Court and for a vehicle used to distribute heroin. In all, police seized 185 bags of heroin, drug paraphernalia and some prescription pills.

All three were arraigned before Magisterial District Justice Alan Cooper and placed in the Pike County Correctional Facility in lieu of bail. They face preliminary hearings before Justice Cooper on May 6.

Kimberly Decker is also wanted by the State of New Jersey for failing to appear for a probation violation.

Tonkin thanked the Pennsylvania State Police, Eastern Pike Regional Police Department, Milford Police Department and Shohola Police Department for their assistance in the investigation.
