Drug Suspect Waives hearing

One of the men charged in the New Year’s Eve sweep by the McKean County Drug Task Force waived his preliminary hearing this morning on separate drug charges.

35-year-old Justin Jones is accused of having 13 Percocet pills he didn’t have a prescription for back on December 17. Police found the pills in a cigarette pack during a traffic stop for an expired registration after Jones consented to a search, according to court papers provided to WESB by District Judge Dominic Cercone's office.

In the drug task force case, Jones is accused of selling Suboxone from his Hedgehog Lane home.

On the new charge, he’s jailed on $10,000 bail.
