Police: Wellsboro man sells prescription pills to informant

WELLSBORO – Barry Mahosky, 64, of 42 Charleston St., was charged by borough police recently after he allegedly sold prescription pain pills to a confidential police informant.

According to documents filed at District Judge Rob Repard’s office, Mahosky was charged with possession of a controlled substance with intent to deliver after he allegedly sold 10 Percocet pills and 10 hydrocodone pills to the informant Oct. 7.

Police allege the hydrocodone was sold for $50 at the Moose Club, Old Tioga Street, and the Percocet was sold for $70 at the residence of the accused.

He waived his March 13 preliminary hearing and was released on $15,000 bail.

His county court arraignment was set for March 31.

In a second incident, Mahosky was charged with possession of a controlled substance after police saw him clearing snow off a roof at 2 Buena Vista St., March 6, and asked him to come down and talk to them.

Before coming down, police said he took a pill bottle out of his pocket and dropped it into a brick on the roof.

Police said the bottle contained three Percocet pills that were not prescribed to him.

Mahosky was issued a summons to appear at an April 10 preliminary hearing for that incident.
