A man who volunteers as a leader for the Boy Scouts in Staten Island, NY, was taken into custody for accusations that he was selling heroin out of the basement at his uncles New Brighton home. His uncle is accused of the criminal activity as well.

Kevin Saunders has worked with the Boy Scouts of America as a volunteer for nearly a year. He began taking a significant interest in working with the children when one of his cousins, the son of his uncle Adam Soler, became a member of the organization, according to a statement from Saunders’ younger brother who is 22-years-old.
