BESSEMER – From Gogebic County Court a Minnesota man admits to Gogebic County Circuit Judge Michael Pope he was the one delivering heroin to the Gogebic Range when the Gogebic Iron Area Narcotics Team arrested him in Ironwood back in September. 35 year old Brandon Lee Bible, of Minneapolis, confessed to charges yesterday which included a pair of felonies for delivering heroin. Bible pleaded guilty to the delivery or manufacturing of heroin and resisting/obstructing police officers as part of a plea agreement. In exchange for the pleas, a charge of tampering with evidence and a three charges from a second case involving contraband in the Gogebic County Jail will be dismissed at sentencing. Prosecutor Nick Jacobs also agreed Bible’s two sentences will be served concurrently and he won’t bring any additional charges related to a series of controlled buys police completed prior to his arrest. Bible is a habitual offender, which can extend the potential maximum sentence he faces. Bible was arrested at the welcome center on U.S. 2 in Ironwood Sept. 10, according to information presented in court. He testified he picked up heroin in Duluth and drove to the welcome center, where he was waiting to hear from the person he was delivering it to. Officers seized about 70 grams of heroin, which has a street value of about $30,000. Bible is scheduled to be sentenced April 30.
