Dickinson men charged with drug crimes are being held on $100,000 bond

Roy Askew and Dustin Iverson, the two Dickinson residents charged with drug crimes involving heroin, were at the Stark County Courthouse today for their initial appearance.

The Stark County State's Attorney, Amanda Engelstad, is alleging that Askew was supplying Iverson with the heroin that he was selling in Dickinson.

One of the individuals that Iverson may have sold to overdosed and had to be attended to by first responders.

The court approved a $100,000 bond for both men, due to a string of overdoses and deaths in the area.

Askew and Iverson are both charged with two Class B drug felonies, with a maximum penalty of 10 years and a $20,000 fine.

Iverson is also charged with two Class C felonies for assault and reckless endangerment with a maximum penalty of five years and a $10,000 fine.

The state's attorney is not commenting at this time if the heroin contained fentanyl.
