A Braidwood man described by police as a “major dealer” of heroin has been arrested.

On Friday, June 21, police arrested Jonathon Stanford, 31, of north Center Street, following a tip that a heroin deal was imminent at his home.

Stanford was described by police as a major supplier in the area, and police had been investigating possible ties to heroin over the past six months.

Stanford was arrested without incident.

He was charged on four felony counts, including two counts of manufacturing and delivering heroin, and two counts of possession of narcotics.

Stanford was booked into the Will County Adult Detention Facility under a $300,000 bond. His next court date is scheduled for July 20.
