Man jailed for allegedly selling crack cocaine
Just three months after being placed on probation, city resident Wesley Robert Brought, 22, was once again before a judge on Wednesday afternoon.
This time it was for his alleged part in selling crack cocaine to a confidential informant and an undercover cop, according to state police.
Brought, of 907 Arch St., is alleged to have participated in drug sales on May 15, last Thursday and on Tuesday, police said.
The sales occurred in the 1900 block of West Fourth Street, police said.
Immediately after the third sale, police obtained a warrant to search Brought’s apartment. In plain view were three bags of heroin and a bag of crack in a toilet bowl, police said.
On probation for theft, Brought was automatically committed to the Lycoming County Prison on a probation violation.
He was arraigned Wednesday before District Judge James H. Sortman on three counts each of possession with intent to deliver a controlled substance, delivery of a controlled substance, possession of a controlled substance and one count each of conspiracy and possession of drug paraphernalia.
He then was recommitted in lieu of $100,000 bail.
Another alleged drug dealer – who also was on probation and recently jailed – was Timothy Mubashir Kelly Jr., 20, of 1247 High St., state police said.
He faces three counts of possession with intent to deliver a controlled substance, two counts of delivery of a controlled substance and four counts of possession of a controlled substance.
The charges stem from alleged drug activity at High and Cemetery streets on March 7, police said. On probation for trespassing, Kelly was arraigned before District Judge Allen P. Page III and jailed in lieu of $25,000 bail.
