JERSEY SHORE - Two Jersey Shore residents have been charged with allegedly working together to sell cocaine to a confidential informant and undercover state police on three different occasions in 2009, according to court records.
Jacqueline Renee Brookens, 37, of 4824 Route 287, Jersey Shore, faces four counts of possession with intent to deliver a controlled substance, four counts of delivery of a controlled substance, conspiracy to deliver a controlled substance and other related charges.
Brookens' boyfriend, Raymond William Riley, 38, of 112 Kendel Ave., Jersey Shore, faces three counts of possession with intent to deliver a controlled substance and three counts of conspiracy to deliver a controlled substance.
On Aug. 6 and 8, 2009, Brookens met with an undercover trooper and the informant and delivered cocaine, police said.
On Aug. 31, 2009, an undercover trooper arranged to meet with Brookens, but was met by the informant instead. The informant handed the trooper a pink glove containing a cigarette box and said Brookens had asked the informant to meet with the trooper because she was "spooked," according to police.
The cigarette box contained cocaine and a small amount of marijuana and a hand-written note from Brookens to the trooper, police said.
Brookens and Riley worked together to negotiate prices of the drug sales and both were unaware of the identities of the informant and undercover trooper, according to court records.
Brookens and Riley were both arraigned before District Judge Jerry C. Lepley on Thursday, and both were committed to the Lycoming County Prison in lieu of $25,000 bail each.
