Bradford Woman Jailed on Drug Charges

UPDATE:

A warrant has been issued for the arrest of 42-year-old Michael Byerly. He is 6 feet tall and weighs 250 pounds.

A Bradford woman who told police she turned to drug dealing to make ends meet is now in McKean County Jail.

40-year-old Susan Byerly was arrested Tuesday after city police and the McKean County Drug Task Force executed a search warrant at her Burnside Avenue home and found multiple bags of cocaine and bags of marijuana packaged for sale.

They also found a number of pistols and long guns as well as an AK-47 style assault rifle with multiple magazines and “many” rounds of ammunition, according to papers filed in District Judge Dominic Cercone’s office. They also found drug paraphernalia, cash and electronics.

Bylerly told police she and her husband have been unemployed for some time, and she turned to drug dealing for supplemental income.

She is jailed on $50,000 bail and is scheduled to appear in Central Court on March 7.
