Superior man accused of arranging drug deals while behind bars

by

DOUGLAS COUNTY, WI (WTAQ) - A man from Superior is accused of arranging drug deals while in jail.

28-year-old Carlos Coleman has been ordered to stand trial on two felony charges of being a party to delivering heroin – and he’s scheduled to enter pleas to those charges on Friday.

Prosecutors said Coleman called his 23-year-old girlfriend from his Douglas County Jail cell – and while jailers were listening in, he gave her step by step instructions for diluting and packaging heroin.

Officials said they monitored a drug delivery a few hours later. And after Coleman called her the next day, they arrested him on the new charges.

He was already facing drug charges from last December – and he’ll enter pleas to those on Friday as well.

Meanwhile, the girlfriend – Miryah Herron of Hermantown Minnesota – has also been ordered to stand trial on two counts of delivering heroin.

She’s scheduled to enter her pleas on March 15th. She’s free on a $500 bond.
