Drug probe leads to charges

NEW CASTLE — An East Side man is wanted for allegedly selling drugs multiple times to confidential informants during a two-year span.

Police said Romero Earlando Good, 45, of 823 Harrison St., formerly of Michigan, sold the drugs between Jan. 22, 2010, and May 23, 2011, during an undercover investigation by the New Castle police narcotics bureau and the Pennsylvania Office of the Attorney General.

Police allege Good sold 30 roxicodone pills to a confidential informant on Jan. 22, 2010, near Shenango Street.

They also allege he sold a confidential informant 55 roxicodone pills in June 2010, in exchange for $1,080 police had provided.

A third controlled buy in May 2011, resulted in the informant buying 0.73-gram of heroin from Good.

The New Castle police and attorney general’s office jointly filed charges against Good Wednesday as a result of the investigation.

He faces six charges of possession with intent to deliver and three counts of criminal use of a communication facility, all felonies.

A warrant has been issued for his arrest.

Milwaukee catcher Martin Maldonado has been suspended five games for sucker punching Pittsburgh’s Travis Snider during a bench clearing brawl on Sunday. You OK with that suspension?

Yes. Seems fair.
No. Baseball NEVER gets it right in these situations. Should have been at least 20 games for his sucker punch into a pile of players.
Not sure, but I’d love to see baseball be like hockey and allow two guys to fight for a while before breaking it up. Let’s see how tough Maldonado is then.
