A Lairdsville man sold prescription opiate medication to a confidential informant, according to an agent from the state police vice unit.

Austin W. White, 18, sold $100 worth of suspected oxycodone and oxycontin from his home along State Route 118 in Lairdsville, according to the affidavit by Pennsylvania State Police Montoursville Trooper Zachary Martin.

On August 14, 2019, a CI arranged the purchase by contacting White on his cell phone, according to Trooper Martin.

Around 12:07 a.m. that day, the CI entered White's residence and left the residence around 12:08 a.m., police said.

"Immediately upon entering my [undercover] vehicle, the CI relinquished a Red Eagle20's brand cigarette box that contained two cigarette wrappers," Trooper Martin wrote.

Inside the cigarette wrappers were nine suspected opiate pills, according to the affidavit.

Charges against White were filed at the Muncy courthouse on November 1, 2019. 

White faces two felony counts of delivery of a controlled substance, one felony count of criminal use of a communication facility, one misdemeanor count each of possession of a controlled substance by a person not registered, and possession of drug paraphernalia. 

White was arraigned before Magisterial District Judge Jon E. Kemp on November 4, 2019.
