CORRECTION: Poulsbo man arrested for allegedly selling heroin, oxycodone pills on Bainbridge

Editor's note: The original version of this report contained an error about the vehicle used in the alleged drug buy, and a claim made by the informant that was not properly attributed. We apologize for the error and improper attribution.

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.

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.

The informant, a convicted felon, was working with police in exchange for monetary payment, according to a certificate of probable cause in the case. Court documents said that police watched as McBride got into the informant's vehicle and allegedly sold the informant drugs.

After the alleged drug deal was complete, police watched as McBride got into his mother's van that was parked nearby and left the scene. The informant later told a detective that the informant had been told that the Percocet pills had come from a prescription from McBride's mother.

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.
