Teens charged with selling drugs sent home
Two Williamsport teenagers, charged last Friday in two separate drug-selling incidents, appeared before Washington County Circuit Judge John H. McDowell Monday and were released to their families.
Neither of the boys, ages 14 and 15, had ever come to the attention of the Department of Juvenile Services for any offenses, according to Matt Riley, a Department of Juvenile Services caseworker.
The older boy was identified as having sold $45 worth of marijuana to a confidential informant on March 2.
Except for curfew violations, the boy's mother said he hasn't been a problem at home.
"He knows he's in a heap of trouble now," Riley said, noting the youth spent the weekend in the Juvenile Holdover Facility on Jonathan Street.
