NORFOLK, Va. (AP) - Law enforcement officials plan to announce an initiative to deal with the heroin problem in Virginia’s Tidewater region.

U.S. Attorney Dana Boente (BEN’-tay) and Virginia Attorney General Mark Herring will be joined by other federal, state and local officials at the news conference Tuesday morning at the federal courthouse in Norfolk.

The officials will make the announcement after the scheduled plea agreement hearing for Gregory G. Hatt of Virginia Beach, who faces heroin distribution and firearms charges. The eight-count indictment includes a charge that Hatt supplied the heroin that led to a woman’s overdose death.
