Titusville Police have charged a man with drug delivery resulting in death for the first time.

Benjamin R. Galmish, 33, was arrested Tuesday on the charge plus manufacture, delivery or possession of drugs with intent to deliver and possession of a controlled substance.

The criminal charges were filed following a lengthy investigation and after receiving approval from the Crawford County District Attorney's Office.

They stem from an overdose death July 1, 2016 at an apartment in the 600 block of West Elm Street in City of Titusville.

Police and EMS workers were unable to resuscitate the victim, who has been identified as Brandon McAleer, 35.

The Crawford County Coroner determined McAleer died from an overdose from a combination of heroin and fentanyl.

Galmish was arraigned Tuesday morning and taken to the Crawford County Prison on $75,000 bond.
