Police arrest handcuffs 02

A Robinson man is being held in Indiana County Jail in lieu of $150,000 bond after his arraignment Friday night on felony charges of possession of a controlled substance with intent to deliver.

Adam L. Garland, 43, also is charged with possession of a controlled substance and drug paraphernalia, after a Friday afternoon raid at his home along Front Street in West Wheatfield Township by Indiana-based state troopers.

Led by Trooper Bruce Waters, state police executed a search warrant at what was described as a drug stash house.

State police said the search yielded 20 grams of suspected crystal methamphetamine and 41 grams of suspected powdered cocaine, as well as various prescription pills, marijuana, digital scales and drug packaging materials.

Troopers said three handguns also were seized during that raid.

Garland was arraigned before Homer City Magisterial District Judge Susanne V. Steffee, who set bond and scheduled a preliminary hearing for Feb. 25 at 3 p.m.

State police said charges are pending against other occupants of Garland’s home, pending further investigation.

In March 2016, Garland was found by game commission officers with a sawed-off shotgun with its serial number removed as well as several items of drug paraphernalia in a wooded area near his home.

In December 2016, he entered a guilty plea to misdemeanor counts of altering an offensive weapon, for which he was sentenced to jail time, as well as possession of drug paraphernalia, for which Indiana County Common Pleas Judge Thomas M. Bianco sentenced him to a year’s probation to follow the jail time.
