Four males from Pennsylvania were arrested and charged for various drug possession offenses Sunday night after being stopped by for speeding, according to Lt. Doug Compton.
Officer Cory Lee conducted the motor vehicle stop and spoke with driver Ryan Nugent, 19, of Bath, Pa., Compton said. During the conversation, Lee smelled raw marijuana emanating from the car, and a subsequent investigation revealed the teen had marijuana and drug paraphernalia on him, Compton said. Lee also found Nugent to be in possession of methadone, Compton said.
One of the vehicle’s passengers, Matthew Gantkowski, 22, of Mohrsville, Pa. was also in possession of drug paraphernalia, Compton said. Lee then searched the two remaining passengers, both 17-year-old males, whose names are being withheld due to their age.
One of the teens, from Sinking Springs, Pa., had Lysergic Acid Diethylamide (LSD) in his possession, while the other juvenile, from Mohrsville, Pa. was in possession of drug paraphernalia, Compton said.
All four males were arrested and transported to Washington Township Police Headquarters.
Nugent was charged with possession of marijuana under 50 grams and possession of drugs in a motor vehicle. Gantkowski was charged with possession of drug paraphernalia. The teen from Sinking Springs, Pa. was charged with possession of a controlled dangerous substance, and the other juvenile was charged with possession of drug paraphernalia.
