New Drug Charge Against Bradford Man

One of the men charged in the New Year’s Eve sweep by the McKean County Drug Task Force is facing another drug charge.

35-year-old Justin Jones was arraigned Tuesday afternoon for 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.

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.

I can't seem to find the story on here about how George B. Duke Jr., 24, of Bradford, was sentenced Thursday in McKean County Court to only probation for possession of 26 packets of heroin in the car, along with syringes, burned spoons with heroin residue, a pipe, marijuana seeds and loose prescription pills.

Does this light sentence have anything to do with him being the son of a Bradford businessman? I'm sure it doesn't.

HOW MANY PEOPLE IN THE AREA WOULD GET OFF WITH 24 AND A HALF MONTHS PROBATION I GUESS MONEY TALKS AND BULLSHIT WALKS..IT'S SAD TO THINK IF YOUR POOR AND NOT A OWNER OF ZIPPO AND CASE YOUR KIDS DO TIME...COME ON 26 PACKETS OF HERION MUST BE HE NEEDED THAT FOR A MEDICAL PROBLEM..

No conspiracy theory here. Our ONE full time news person (me) sometimes misses things. This just happened to be one of the things that slipped through the cracks. I'll try to do better.
