A brother and sister accused of taking part in drug-related activity in neighboring Bedford County earlier this year were picked up here on arrest warrants last Tuesday.

Jason Michael Fischer, 24, and Jennifer Irene Shaw, 34, were arrested on May 1 as part of an investigation launched by the Bedford County District Attorney’s Office. Both Fischer and Shaw were arraigned by Magisterial District Judge Kathy Calhoun in Everett, who set straight bail at the respective amounts of $150,000 and $100,000. They are currently being held in Bedford County Jail.

According to Pennsylvania State Police from the Mc- Connellsburg barracks, Fischer was taken into custody with local law enforcement assistance at a Heritage Drive, McConnellsburg, residence.

Meanwhile, Shaw was picked up during a traffic stop along Great Cove Road. Police said at the time of her arrest, she was in possession of 29 packets of suspected heroin, which have since been transported to a state police crime lab for further analysis.

A criminal complaint and affidavit of probable cause filed in the case by detectives Steven Shelley and Courtney Wise indicate Fischer faces one count each of criminal conspiracy and delivery and possession of a controlled substance. Shaw is accused of criminal conspiracy to deliver a controlled substance and criminal use of a communication facility.

Fischer is currently under state parole in connection with a 2006 conviction for robbery. Fischer and Shaw both reside at homes located along Moss Road in Brush Creek Township.

It is alleged by arresting officers that a confidential informant spoke with Shaw and made arrangements to purchase heroin
