An investigation of a fatal overdose in North New Hyde Park led to the arrest of a Queens man who was charged with felonies for possessing marijuana and 10 bags of heroin, Nassau police said.
Damiean Landell Johnson, 25, was charged with criminal possession of a controlled substance and criminal sale of a controlled substance. He was held on bail of $50,000 cash or $50,000 bond at his arraignment Wednesday in First District Court in Hempstead, according to online court records.
"We will be continuing with our zero-tolerance response to any and all illegal drug activity within the County," the police said in a statement.
Johnson was represented by the Legal Aid Society of Nassau County, which has a policy of not commenting at the arraignment stage of a case.
No further details were immediately available.
