Man charged in Peach Bottom drug death
A man is accused of providing the drugs that caused the death of a Peach Bottom Township man earlier this year.
Police say Brandon Todd Orr, 34, left his home in the evening hours of Feb. 17 and purchased drugs from Richard Wayne Schock.
Orr was found dead the next day, according to state police. The coroner's office determined Orr's cause of death was a fentanyl overdose, according to charging documents.
Schock, 49, of the 400 block of Wise Road, is charged with drug delivery resulting in death and involuntary manslaughter.
Drugs: State police were dispatched to Orr's Pine Trail home on Feb. 18, and they found Orr dead in the downstairs bathroom.
A white powdery substance was found on a small piece of paper, which police say later tested positive for fentanyl.
Police searched Orr's phone and found that he and a friend had left to meet Schock at a barn on Feb, 17, documents state.
Police say Schock sold Orr drugs for $100, according to court documents.
Orr then snorted some of the drugs and was dropped off near his home, police said.
On Sept. 12, police spoke with Schock. He said he wasn't aware of any information regarding Orr's death but said he spoke to Orr the night before his death, according to charging documents.
Schock said he spoke to Orr about potential future drywall work.
Schock denied selling Orr drugs but told police the two had gone to Baltimore several times before to purchase them, documents state. Schock then declined to speak any longer and requested a ride home, according to charging documents.
Charges were filed Thursday, Sept. 14, and Schock was arraigned on the charges that day. He was remanded to York County Prison in lieu of $125,000 bail.
He does not have an attorney listed.
Schock's preliminary hearing is scheduled for 1:30 p.m. Oct. 18 at District Judge Laura Manifold's office.
