Men Waive Hearings on Drug Charges

Two Bradford men who were arrested on drug charges after police saw drug paraphernalia fall out of one man’s lap during a traffic stop have waived their preliminary hearings.

State police say they stopped 23-year-old George Duke Jr.’s car for a vehicle code violation and as they were approaching the car, 23-year-old Russell Tallentire got out of the passenger side, and that’s when the paraphernalia fell onto the ground.

Police seized Duke’s car and got a search warrant. The next day, they found several packets of heroin, a small amount of marijuana, un-bottled prescription pills, syringes and other drug paraphernalia.

Both men are free on bail.
