      Oswego Police arrested three people after a heroin bust on Monday.

      Officers investigating heroin possession and sale in the City of Oswego found the three in a car in a parking lot on East First Street, near Utica Street, at about 7:45pm.

      Officers seized 68 bags of heroin in the bust.

      25-year-old Alton I. West, of Lynhurst Avenue, Syracuse, 24-year-old Shawndell M. Johnson, of East Seneca Turnpike, Syracuse and 31-year-old Sharesha R. Pritchett, of River Knoll, Baldwinsville, were arrested in the drug bust.

      All three were charged with criminal possession of a controlled substance with intent to sell.

      Officers say the three brought the heroin from Syracuse.

      They were arraigned and taken to Oswego County Correctional Facility in lieu of bail. They are due back in court on August 19.
