STROUDSBURG, Pa. - It only took a Monroe County jury one hour to convict a man found with nearly 800 heroin packets.
On Tuesday, David Hassan Ali Haywood, 31, of Pocono Township, was found guilty of one count of possession with intent to deliver heroin, one count of possession of heroin, one count of possession of marijuana and two counts of possession of drug paraphernalia.
Haywood’s path to conviction all began on April 4, 2016, when officers from the Pocono Township Police Department were called to a home on Image Drive in Pocono Township for a domestic dispute.
When officers arrived they say they smelled marijuana and saw Haywood taking clothes from the residence, presumably to place them in a car.
Officers then say they detained Haywood and searched the car and residence recovering 770 packets of heroin ready to sell.
After listening to one day of testimony and evidence, the jury deliberated for approximately one hour before delivering the verdict, according to the DA.
This is the second conviction of Haywood for selling heroin in a month; On October 12, he was convicted for the same crime after being found with 210 packets of heroin in his vehicle in late 2015.
Haywood also has several prior convictions for trafficking heroin in New Jersey.
The DA’s office says it will seek a "significant sentence" in state prison against Haywood at the sentencing hearing, which is scheduled for December 18, 2017.
