GREENCASTLE, Pa. - A Greencastle man facing several drug-related charges entered guilty pleas and will be sentenced next month in Franklin County Court.

Bradley Freshman, 23, pleaded guilty to theft by deception and two counts of delivery of a controlled substance last week. He will be sentenced June 5, according to the Franklin County District Attorney's Office.

Freshman, of 3359 Williamson Road, sold two bags of heroin to an undercover Franklin County Drug Task Force detective and a confidential informant from his home last January, according to court records.

In August, Pennsylvania State Police investigated the theft of several checks from a Greene Township woman who said someone, later identified as Freshman, cashed a check belonging to her at Talhelm's Gas Station in Antrim Township, court records show.

Freshman told police he received the check from a woman who knew the victim and gave her the money. The woman has since returned to Iowa and will not be prosecuted, according to court records.

On Feb. 5, Pennsylvania State Police searched Freshman's residence where they found five vials of heroin, hypodermic needles, $376 cash and assorted paraphernalia, according to State Police. Freshman told police he had purchased 20 vials of heroin in Baltimore the day before and sold at least six of them, according to court records.

In exchange for the plea, Freshman will not be prosecuted on several charges relating to the three cases including one count each of criminal use of a communication facility, forgery, possession of a controlled substance and possession of drug paraphernalia.
