A Sherburne man being held in the Chenango County Correctional Facility is facing new charges.

The Chenango County Sheriff's Department charged 40-year-old Nathan Jackson with criminal possession of a controlled substance and promoting prion contraband.

Sheriff's officials say after an investigation, they found Jackson had a controlled substance which tested positive as heroin.

He'll face the charges at a later date in Town of Norwich Court.
