The Harrison County Sheriff's Department has arrested two Pittsburgh men on heroin charges.
The Harrison County Street Crimes and Drug Unit tracked a gold Chevrolet Traverse from Harrison County to Pittsburgh, Pa., back to Harrison County. The heroin was transported to West Virginia by Raimonte Gordon Gaston, a.k.a. Boog, and Daimere Jacquea Wilmer with the intention to sell it in Harrison County, according to a criminal complaint.
An undercover officer purchased one brick of heroin, approximately 50 stamps, for $500. After arresting Gaston and Wilmer, law enforcement executed a search warrant on the vehicle and recovered 31 additional bricks of heroin, 1,550 stamps, worth $30,000. A loaded Firestorm semi automatic pistol was located under the seat of Wilmer, according to the criminal complaint. Three bags of marijuana were also found on the men, according to the criminal complaint.
A records search on both men revealed that both Gaston and Wilmer had prior felony convictions and were prohibited from possessing firearms, said the criminal complaint.
The Harrison County Sheriff's Department categorized Gaston and Wilmer as upper middle-men in the heroin trade. Marano said the men were buying a brick of heroin for $250, sold it to a middle man for $500, and it would be sold at a street price of $1,000.
Both Gaston and Wilmer are being held in North Central Regional Jail with bail set at $500,00 for each.
