CLEARFIELD – A Curwensville man involved with bringing methamphetamine to the area was sentenced to state prison Tuesday during sentencing court.
Cory Adam Irwin, 35, pleaded guilty before Judge Paul E. Cherry to possession with intent to deliver a controlled substance-methamphetamine and conspiracy.
Cherry sentenced him to nine months to three years in state prison.
The charges stem from an encounter with police around midnight on Nov. 30 in Clearfield Borough.
According to the affidavit of probable cause, police saw a vehicle with four people in it stopped on a street. There was a fifth person standing outside the vehicle.
The driver was identified as Julie Fogle and the front-seat passenger as Trevor Brubaker. They said they were in the area to visit Irwin, who was in the back seat.
While they spoke with them, officers saw a large sum of cash. Because of this and the fact that they appeared nervous, police requested a K-9 unit.
Prior to the unit’s arrival, Fogle admitted there was methamphetamine in the vehicle.
Fogle told police that earlier that evening they had stopped at a residence in Lawrence Township where Irwin sold meth in exchange for Xanax pills that he and Brubaker were going to split.
In an interview after he was taken into custody, Brubaker reportedly admitted to officers that he brought quantities of meth to the Clearfield area five different times and sold it for $40 per a quarter of a gram of the drug.
He said he could charge more for it because his meth is “so good,” according to the affidavit.
He said he was a good dealer because his product “gets people hooked” but he isn’t addicted to it. He admitted that he used his girlfriend, Fogle’s phone to arrange his drug sales and offered to show police messages in it related to drug activity.
Fogle gave police consent to search her phone. She reportedly stated that Brubaker was involved with the illegal sale of meth throughout Pennsylvania. She gave information on where he stops on his way from Lancaster, police said.
A total of $2,413 was seized from the vehicle and Brubaker had 30 grams of methamphetamine.
Brubaker, 20, of New Providence pleaded guilty to possession with intent to deliver a controlled substance, conspiracy, dealing in proceeds of unlawful activities and possession of drug paraphernalia. He was sentenced to 12 months to three years in state prison in February.
Fogle, 19, of Lancaster pleaded guilty to possession with intent to deliver a controlled substance-methamphetamine and criminal conspiracy. Cherry sentenced her to nine to 18 months in the county jail and six months consecutive probation in April.
