SANATOGA PA – A 26-year-old Gilbertsville resident was arrested Wednesday evening (Jan. 2, 2013) on drug-related violations after being stopped along Ludwig Lane in the Buchert Ridge Community off Buchert Road in Lower Pottsgrove, township police reported.
Sean Watson Graham was charged with possession of a controlled substance, possession of drug paraphernalia and driving while his license was suspended or revoked, Sgt. Timothy Walters said.
Police went to the senior citizen residential development after receiving a 6:43 p.m. report of a suspicious vehicle, a dark-green sedan occupied by a while male with a thin build, parked on Ludwig Lane. He was not known to be a resident of the community, according to a police press release, and he had not been seen visiting anyone who lived there.
As Walters arrived he said he found a vehicle, a green Audi A4 Quattro, attempting to leave the area. He stopped and approached its driver, later identified as Graham, and allegedly observed him “attempting to conceal items in his jacket.” Walters reported the items were later determined to be a spoon and a syringe.
A subsequent search of Graham allegedly found him to also be holding four baggies of a substance suspected to be heroin and six other similar but empty baggies. “Graham admitted to officers that he had recently purchased heroin and had pulled into this development” to inject it, the press release claimed.
Graham also was found to have had his Pennsylvania driver’s license suspended, the release added. His vehicle was later towed from the development.
Charges against Graham are pending a preliminary hearing before Magisterial District Justice Edward C. Kropp Sr.
