Court Date Set For Alleged Drug Dealer

A November 16th arraignment in Putnam County Criminal Court has been set for a Monterey man, indicted on charges of selling drugs near a school.  Authorities say 33-year-old Matthew Christopher Redden is accused of selling prescription pain pills on at least two occasions at a location that was within a thousand feet of Uffelman Elementary School.  The sales allegedly took place back in February and the medication was identified by authorities as "buprenorphine," a drug that is also sometimes known as suboxone or subutex.  Redden is free on $30,000 bond, pending his arraignment.
