    selling heroin

    BENNINGTON — A Manchester resident who was one of the targets of a drug sweep Sept. 25 was arraigned Monday on a felony charge of selling heroin.

    Daniel C. Reddan, 31, of Manchester, pleaded innocent in Bennington criminal court to the charge as well as misdemeanor counts of heroin possession and driving with a suspended license. Reddan has other pending charges for driving with a suspended license as well.

    In an affidavit, police said they had received reliable information that “Dan from Manchester” had “dog food” for sale April 9. The affidavit said “dog food” is slang for heroin.

    Police arranged to have a “cooperating individual” buy 10 bags of heroin from Reddan at a parking lot in Bennington on April 9. Police were able to observe the sale and record it with a video camera, according to the affidavit.

    Another target of the drug sweep, Edward Crandall Jr., 36, of Bennington, was involved in the sale, police said. Crandall was arrested and arraigned on Sept. 25. Reddan was released without bail Monday.
