DUI added to charges man faces
An additional charge of driving under the influence of a controlled substance has been filed against Brandon Robert Love, 19, whose last known address was of the 400 block of Wilson Street.
Love was taken into custody on a probation violation when Montoursville police caught him traveling 80 mph on Interstate 180 on March 25.
The officer detected a strong odor of “raw marijuana” coming from the vehicle. A 17-year-old boy riding in the car was found to have 421 packets of heroin on him, and 15 grams of marijuana later were found in the vehicle after it was impounded and police obtained a search warrant.
Test results have now revealed that Love was driving under the influence of marijuana when the stop was made about 3 a.m., police said. Initially committed to the Lycoming County Prison, he now is free on bail.
