Two men are facing charges in connection to fatal and non-fatal overdoses in Adams County in 2019; one is facing homicide charges.
According to the Adams County Sheriff’s Department, Michael Subera, 38, of Arkdale is suspected of delivering heroin to two individuals that subsequently contributed to their deaths. He is reportedly also suspected of being in the chain of delivery of three additional non-fatal overdoses.
The following charges have been recommended to the Adams County District Attorney’s Office for Subera: two counts of first degree reckless homicide drug delivery, three counts of reckless injury – drug delivery, and delivery of a narcotic drug
A second individual, Ronald Serles, 52, of Adams, is suspected of delivering heroin and fentanyl to two individuals that required emergency medical intervention but survived. He is facing charges as well.
The following charges have been recommended to the Adams County District Attorney’s Office for Serles: two counts of drug delivery, and delivery of a narcotic drug.
Police say the homicide charges stem from the ongoing death investigation of Brett Severin of Hancock and Hans Pietrzak of Adams — both victims of fatal overdoses in 2019.
Additional charges are the result of an investigation into a non-fatal overdose in Adams in 2019. Police said that investigation alleges that Subera delivered drugs to Serles, who then delivered it to two victims. Serles reportedly was the victim of a non-fatal overdoes during the same incident.
