• Man accused of selling heroin from Uniontown nursing home

    Updated:

    UNIONTOWN, Pa. - Police said a heroin dealer didn’t slow down after a serious injury.  They said he sold heroin out of his nursing home room in Uniontown.

    “It caught us by surprise,” said Ed Francia, the Cherry Tree Nursing Center administrator.

    Investigators showed up with a warrant to search Roosevelt Lee Kennedy’s room for drugs.

    According to the criminal complaint, a drug informant bought heroin off Kennedy for months -- first at a bar and then at a gas station.   Police said he later asked his buyer to come to the nursing home.

    Francia said the building is secure and you have to be buzzed in, but residents are allowed visitors.

    “Anyone who comes in has to sign in at the front desk,” he said.

    Francia said Kennedy didn’t have a lot of visitors and was discharged the day investigators visited.
