Men from Williamsport and Muncy face felony drug charges after allegedly conspiring to deliver cocaine, according to Muncy Borough Police.
A confidential informant (CI) reported contacted the Muncy Borough Police Department to say that he/she suspected Thomas Scott Cramm, 44, of North Market Street, Muncy, of changing his testimony in a criminal case in which he/she was an assault victim.
The CI also told police that Cramm had offered to sell him/her narcotics on previous occasions.
The CI visited Cramm at his home on November 8, 2019, and said he/she had $50 and asked if Cramm could sell him/her anything to "settle [his/her] nerves," PO Ernest Delp III wrote in an affidavit filed November 9, 2019.
Cramm reportedly said he "does not do anything for fifty dollars and that it would cost one hundred and fifty dollars, but that he could not do that today," Patrolman Delp wrote.
Cramm reportedly told the CI that he would contact his supplier and provide five bags of cocaine for that money, keeping a portion of the cocaine as a fee for conducting the transaction.
On November 9, 2019, the CI again contacted Cramm, this time by phone. Cramm contacted his supplier, later identified as Donovan Scott Peterson, 52, of the 600 Block of Green Street, Williamsport.
Peterson brought five bags of powdered cocaine from his residence in Williamport to Cramm's residence in Muncy for the sale, according to police.
Officers from the Muncy Borough Police Department observed the drug transaction between Cramm and the CI, and recovered two baggies of cocaine from the CI afterward, according to the affidavit.
Police then knocked on the door of Cramm's residence, identifying themselves as police, at which time one of the pople inside reportedly threw the other three bags of cocaine into a closet.
Cramm reportedly admitted to giving the CI cocaine in exchange for $150. Peterson confirmed Cramm's story and admitted his involvement by bringing five baggies of cocaine to Cramm's residence for the purchase amount of $150, according to police.
Each man was charged with two ungraded felony counts of conspiracy delivery of a controlled substance, two ungraded felony counts of delivery of a controlled substance, one third degree felony count criminal use of a communication facility, and one ungraded misdemeanor count each of possession of drug paraphernalia and possession of a controlled substance by a person not registered.
Their bail was set at $50,000 straight bail each on November 9, 2019. They both were placed into Lycoming County Prison on November 9, 2019, unable to post bail.
