Hyndman resident wanted by drug task force for heroin delivery

BEDFORD, Pa. — A Hyndman man was among 21 area residents wanted by the Bedford County Drug Task Force as part of Operation March Madness on Tuesday morning.

The task force and Pennsylvania State Police were seeking to serve arrest warrants on the residents, including Jeffrey Matzka, 25, of Hyndman. Matzka was wanted for heroin delivery, according to the Bedford County District Attorney’s Office.

The remaining 20 warrants were for residents of Bedford and surrounding communities as well as two in Huntingdon County. All defendants who were apprehended were arraigned at the office of Magisterial District Judge Kathy Calhoun.

The defendants were charged with dealing various drugs, including heroin, marijuana and prescription pills as well as counterfeit controlled substances. They ranged in age from 19 to 60.

The drug task force also seized three automobiles and one motorcycle, which will be forfeited to fund future drug investigations. More than 20 state troopers were assisted by the Bedford, Everett and Saxton police departments, Bedford Sheriff’s Department, Bedford County Probation and Pennsylvania State Parole.

Operation March Madness culminates an eight-month in-vestigation into local drug trafficking operations that began after Operation Summer Catch, where 20 alleged drug dealers were apprehended.

Anyone with information relating to drugs and controlled substances in Bedford County may call the Drug Task Force Hotline at 866-DRUG-INFO.
