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.

When the Staten Island Narcotics Heroin Overdose Task Force was investigating the origin of the illegal narcotics in one of the recent local fatal heroin overdoses, they believed the drugs had been obtained from Saunders, and they began to look into his activities. Their efforts led them to Soler’s home, and they suspected the heroin was being distributed from that location. On Friday they obtained a search warrant to inspect the premises.
