BENNINGTON, Vt. (AP) - A New York man has denied charges that he brought 280 bags of heroin emblazoned with “Donald Trump” into Vermont.

The Rutland Herald reports (https://bit.ly/2dCW8ob ) 29-year-old Danny Main Jr. of Hoosick Falls, New York, pleaded not guilty Monday to a felony count of trafficking heroin from out of state.

Defense attorney Frederick Bragdon said if Main had heroin, it was for his own personal use and not for sale.

Main allegedly told police during his July 26 arrest he was bringing the drugs to three customers.

It’s common for heroin dealers to put stamps on packages as a way of branding their drugs. The names are frequently taken from pop culture.
