CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. - A Fayetteville, Pa., man was in Franklin County Prison on Wednesday, charged with selling heroin to an undercover trooper with the Pennsylvania State Police, according to a news release from the Franklin County Drug Task Force.

William F. Gunter, 35, of 53 Fifth Ave., was taken into custody Thursday, March 9, at the Keystone Car Wash, 1881 Philadelphia Ave., as he allegedly tried to sell fake heroin to an undercover officer, police said. He was arraigned before Senior Magisterial District Judge Brenda Knepper on charges of attempted delivery of a noncontrolled substance, possession of marijuana and criminal use of a communications facility. He was jailed on $50,000 bond, police said.

Gunter also was charged with two counts of delivery of heroin. Those charges were filed with Magisterial District Judge Gary Carter, who set bail at $25,000, according to prison records.

The delivery charges stem from incidents last month at an address in the 700 block of Broad Street in Chambersburg, according to the task force news release. Gunter allegedly sold a trooper 20 bags of heroin Feb. 7 and 10 more bags Feb. 10, police said.
