Man, 19, faces heroin charges
By Zach Spadt
WORLAND – Oscar Diaz, 19 of Worland, entered a not guilty plea in district court Wednesday. Diaz stands accused of distribution of heroin, a felony offense punishable by imprisonment of up to 20 years, a $25,000 fine or both.
An affidavit of probable cause alleges that Diaz sold $150 worth of heroin to a confidential informant while under the surveillance of law enforcement.
On September 5, 2014, the informant met with law enforcement officers and was provided with $150. The informant then met with law enforcement officers before meeting with Diaz.
After meeting with Diaz, the informant exchanged the money for heroin after which the informant met with law enforcement at a prearranged location, the affidavit alleges. A field test indicated the substance tested positive for heroin, according to the affidavit.
After the affidavit was submitted, a warrant for Diaz’s arrest was issued December 4. Diaz turned himself in January 18 after learning that law enforcement was looking for him, a dispatch log reads.
