The Shenandoah County Sheriff's Office arrested two people in connection to overdoses in Shenandoah County.

On Friday, deputies arrested Ronald Lee Stickley Jr. for possession of schedule I/II, (heroin), conspiracy to possess schedule I/II, and obstruction of justice. The sheriff's office says the charges stem from an incident that occurred on January 14 in which Stickley Jr. was involved in an overdose in Woodstock.

Deputies say Stickley also provided false information to investigators numerous times since the incident in an attempt to mislead the investigation.

On January 14, the Shenandoah County Sheriff's Office investigated two overdose cases in the Strasburg and Woodstock areas and assisted with a third overdose in the town limits of Woodstock. Two overdoses appeared to be heroin related and one resulted in death. The cause of the third is still unknown.

Stickley is scheduled to be in Shenandoah County General District Court on February 24.

On Monday, deputies with the Shenandoah County Sheriff's Office and investigators with the Northwest Virginia Regional Drug Task Force arrested Richard Allen Jenkins Jr. for one count of distribution of heroin. Deputies says the charge stems from a incident where Jenkins allegedly supplied heroin that lead to an overdose injury. The investigation is ongoing. The Sheriff has not said whether Jenkins is connected with the Woodstock overdoes.

Jenkins is scheduled to be in Shenandoah County General District Court on February 10.
