A Limestone, N.Y., man has been jailed on methamphetamine-related charges in Bradford.
Brandan M. Willoughby, 28, of 6194 Limestone Run, was arraigned Monday night before District Judge David Engman on charges of possession with the intent to deliver a controlled substance, a felony; possession of drug paraphernalia, a misdemeanor; and disorderly conduct and theft by unlawful taking, both third-degree misdemeanors.
At 7:16 p.m. Monday, Bradford City Police were called to the rear parking lot of Northwest Bank on Main Street for a disturbance. Reports indicated “that a suspect had a pipe and someone was trying to be pulled out of a vehicle,” the criminal complaint stated.
At the scene, a man with a blue bag on his shoulder walked toward police, and an officer frisked the man — Willoughby — for officer safety. Sticking out of Willoughby’s pocket was an empty pen tube with suspected narcotic residue inside of it. The officer had Willoughby place his hand behind his back to be handcuffed.
During a subsequent search of Willoughby, police found him to be in possession of a clear plastic baggie containing about 22 grams of meth, tin foil with suspected burnt heroin residue on it and $155 in cash.
“This amount of Methamphetamine is substantially more than personal use,” court records records stated.
Police also spoke to another male, who reported that he believes Willoughby stole $1,000 from him, as well as a carton of Seneca red cigarettes, according to the complaint. The carton of cigarettes was allegedly found in Willoughby’s bag.
Willoughby is in McKean County Jail in lieu of $50,000 bail. He is scheduled to appear in Central Court on March 12.
