Deputy in fair condition after heart attack

October 29, 1998

MARTINSBURG, W.Va. - A Berkeley County Sheriff's Department officer who suffered a heart attack while searching for two drug suspects in the Hedgesville, W.Va., area Tuesday was listed in fair condition on Wednesday.

Capt. Richard Steerman, who has been with the sheriff's department for 25 years, was walking through a wooded area when he suffered the attack, said Capt. Curtis Keller.

A Maryland State Police helicopter, which was being used in the search, took Steerman from the scene to City Hospital in Martinsburg, Keller said.

Steerman later was taken to Winchester (Va.) Medical Center, where he was listed in fair condition Wednesday.
