Poulsbo man arrested for allegedly selling heroin, oxycodone pills on Bainbridge
A 30-year-old Poulsbo man was charged with delivery of a controlled substance Thursday in Kitsap County District Court after police said the man sold pure heroin and 20 Percocet pills to an undercover informant at the Day Road Park-and-Ride on Bainbridge Island.
Jason Michael McBride was arrested by Bainbridge police and booked into Kitsap County Jail on Wednesday, Feb. 19. His bail was set at $50,000 for delivery of heroin.
According to the jail, McBride also has three other pending charges for failing to appear in court, with bail set for those charges at $20,000. Jail records indicate he is also a felony fugitive from another state.
According to court documents, police set up a controlled buy of heroin and oxycodone from McBride on Aug. 15, and a 10-year informant for the police set up the sting at the Day Road Park-and-Ride.
Police later watched as the informant got into McBride's vehicle, described in court documents as his mother's van, and purchased the drugs.
Authorities also said McBride's mother was sitting in the driver's seat, and that the Percocet pills had come from his mother's prescription and that she allegedly knew her son was selling her pills.
A field test indicated the drugs were Percocet (a trade name for oxycodone) pills and heroin.
Conviction for delivery of a controlled substance is a felony that carries a maximum sentence of 10 years in prison and a $25,000 fine.
McBride's next appearance in court has been scheduled for March 4.
