State police say three teens ripped off an 18-year-old East Nottingham man of marijuana right before the man was run over by a pickup truck near his home Tuesday night.

State troopers based in Chester County say three teens are responsible for the death of an 18-year-old man in a drug deal gone bad in East Nottingham.

Anthony Rody-Pietro, 18, of East Nottingham, was killed Tuesday night when he was run over by a pickup truck driven by one of the three teens, the Delaware County Daily Times reports.

The teens reportedly had arranged to meet Rody-Pietro near Duck Farm and Oxford roads, in East Nottingham, about 7:30 p.m. to buy marijuana from him. At the meeting on the 100 block of Duck Farm Road, one of the juveniles grabbed a bag of marijuana from Rody-Pietro and the juvenile driver allegedly pulled away with the 18-year-old East Nottingham man hanging onto the truck.

Rody-Pietro fell off or let go of the truck when it turned onto Oxford Road ,and he was run over.

Police recovered surveillance video that showed the pickup park on Duck Farm Road, leading them to the three suspects.

Police have charged Benjamin F. Deasey, 18, of Oxford, with robbery, aggravated assault, criminal conspiracy, theft by unlawful taking, involuntary manslaughter and recklessly endangering another person. No charges had been filed against the two juveniles as of Thursday afternoon.
