Reporter Sara Jean Green of the Seattle Times reported a King County District Court judge found probable cause on Tuesday, March 19 to hold a 33-year-old Issaquah man in jail on investigation of controlled-substance homicide for allegedly selling heroin to a Bellevue man in May 2011 who then died from an overdose.
Anthony Cho was booked into the King County Jail on Monday and was ordered held on $50,000 bail, according to King County prosecutors.
The Seattle Times story also said Cho was arrested after another man, Adam Pepka, told prosecutors in February that Cho was his heroin supplier and that he acted as Cho’s “middleman” in a number of drug transactions, according to the statement of probable cause outlining the police case against Cho. Pepka, who was originally charged with controlled-substance homicide in August 2011, pleaded guilty Feb. 21 to two felony drug charges, court records show.
