Four men have been arrested and remanded to the Snyder County Prison in lieu of $50,000 bail after a drug bust late last week.  Selinsgrove Police along with the Snyder County Sheriff Narcotics K-9 Unit served a warrant on a house on North Market in Selinsgrove on Friday.  Police encountered a pit bull inside the premises after forcing their way into the dwelling.  Several suspects were apprehended as they tried to escape, including two women.  Shamokin Dam Police and State Police assisted at the scene.  Several items were seized as evidence during the search.  Felony charges against the four suspects include possession with intent to deliver marijuana and methamphetamine, and criminal conspiracy to possess and deliver a controlled substance.  Additional charges are pending.

 

A Huntingdon man was arrested last month on several counts, including possession of prohibited offensive weapons.  State Police say 18-year-old Bradley Flasher was stopped on Route 522 in Shirley Township on November 8th for traveling at a high rate of speed.  A probable cause search of Flasher’s vehicle revealed brass knuckles and drug paraphernalia.  Charges were filed through District Court.

 

Felony charges were filed in Chester County against two men for conspiring to steal money from public universities in Pennsylvania under the guise of operating a travel management agency based in Denver, Colorado.  An investigation by agents from the Pennsylvania Attorney General’s Office led to charges against Kyle McWhirter and Michael Kennedy, both of Grass Valley, California.  The defendants, who purported to run a company called Pan Am Inc., contracted with the Pennsylvania State System of Higher Education (PASSHE) to provide travel services to the organization and constituent universities.  In 2016, West Chester University paid $10,299 for 33 airline tickets to South Africa, and Lock Haven University paid $22,500 for airline tickets to Jamaica.  Neither school received the airline tickets.  McWhirter and Kennedy are each charged with criminal conspiracy, deceptive or fraudulent business practices, receiving stolen property and related offenses.
