2 Men Charged In Dutchess ‘Breaking Bad’ Heroin Deaths

Dennis Sica and John Rohlman were both charged in federal court with distributing heroin in Dutchess County,. The men stand accused of selling a lethal form of heroin (some containing fentanyl) in bags, marked with a label named after the popular television series, Breaking Bad. Both men face life sentences if convicted on the charges described in a criminal complaint filed in the U.S. District Court in White Plains.

20 year old Beekman resident Anthony Delello died last Decmeber after a lethal dose of Breaking Bad heroin. Witnesses told the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration and the Dutchess County Sheriff’s Officers that Sica sold Delello the drug the night before. Text messages revealed that even after Delello’s death the two accused men continued to sell the lethal drug, NBC News reports. On Feb. 1, Thomas Miller, 31, of Pawling, New York, and Laura Brown, 35, of New Milford, CT were both found dead in their homes with bags of Breaking Bad near their bodies.

Heroin is a growing epidemic across the Hudson valley and regions of upstate New York as heroin related deaths were up 45 percent from 2006 to 2010 and continue to rise, according to U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara.
