A Pinch man was arrested on drug charges Wednesday after an investigation spurred by anonymous tips.
Jared Brent Casdorph, 32, of Pinch, was charged with possession with intent to distribute a controlled substance after police found heroin at his residence. If convicted, Casdorph faces one to five years in prison and up to a $15,000 fine.
