A Sunbury man was charged after allegedly being found with meth, weed, and syringes while on probation in Snyder County on 9/26/18, according to police.

Nathaniel Louis Poston, 30, was allegedly intending to sell the drugs when his probation officer came for a regular house check.

“Poston admitted to having, Methamphetamine, a small amount of Marijuana, and various drug paraphernalia, to include smoking devices, stamped, and unstamped badges, and syringes,” read the criminal complaint.

Poston was charged with Possession and Possession with an Intent to Sell.

A hearing will be held at 1025 us rt 522, in Selinsgrove PA, on 10/22, at 9:30.

Selinsgrove has been trying to deal with a serious drug issue for years.

A day after an Orange Street News investigation revealed a shocking rise in heavy drugs like heroin inside of Selinsgrove High School during the last school year, Superintendent Chad Cohrs acknowledged just how big of a drug problem is confronting the school in a letter to parents asking for the public’s help.

“The Selinsgrove Area has been experiencing a marked increase in drug activity which is impacting our students,” read the letter from last year. “While drug and alcohol usage is not something new, the frequency and types of drugs we are seeing is cause for increased concern. The use of prescription medications such as Xanax, Vicodin, and Oxycodone are on the rise. Use of other street drugs, such as heroin, are also increasing.”
