Accused drug dealer Steffan Sisson waived a preliminary hearing Monday before District Judge Bill Todd in Smethport.
Sisson, 31, of 34 Route 44, is charged with three counts of possession with intent to deliver a controlled substance, felonies; criminal use of a communication facility, a third-degree felony; two counts of possession of a controlled substance, misdemeanors; and five counts of possessing a firearm when prohibited, first-degree misdemeanors.
On Oct. 22, a confidential informant of the McKean County Drug Task Force purchased a gram of methamphetamine from Sisson in a controlled buy at Sisson’s residence.
A search warrant was executed at the residence after the buy. Law enforcement found 15 grams of meth and approximately 200 bags of fentanyl, along with four .22-caliber rifles and one 7mm-08 rifle inside the residence. Sisson has a prior conviction in New York state for criminal possession of a narcotic with intent to sell, which prohibits him from possessing a firearm, the criminal complaint stated.
Sisson remains incarcerated in McKean County Jail in lieu of $250,000 bail.
