Sentence Handed Down for Woodbury Teen Found with Heroin

Robert John Ennis, 19, was given probation.

The Woodbury teenager police suspected of dealing drugs—and in whose room officers found heroin in March—has been sentenced to probation on a fifth-degree drug conviction.

Robert John Ennis, 19, was given a $500 fine, five years of probation and a stayed sentence on the condition that he remain law abiding, abstain from drugs or alcohol and enroll in a chemical-dependency program, among other stipulations of his release.

According to the criminal complaint:

The Washington County Narcotics Task Force in December 2011 obtained information that Ennis was selling marijuana and other drugs to people in the Woodbury area.

A confidential informant said marijuana could be purchased from Ennis, and the individual bought $350 worth of the drug from him.

On March 20, authorities executed a search warrant of Ennis’ home at the 2200 block of Timberlea Drive.

There, police found that he was in possession of numerous items of drug paraphernalia, two digital scales, three glass mason jars with suspected marijuana, a black shot glass with suspected black tar heroin weighing .07 grams, and four small balloons containing suspected black tar heroin weighing .05 grams. Both black tar substances tested positive for the presence of heroin.
