A Donora man was placed in the Washington County Correctional Facility on a parole detainer after he allegedly tried to falsify a drug test.

David Clark Modrey, 27, of 431 Waddell Ave., Donora, reported to the Donora Police Department Thursday to meet with his probation officer and was asked to take a urine test.

According to an affidavit of probable cause filed at the Monongahela office of Magisterial District Judge Mark Wilson, the probation officer noticed that the front of Modrey's pants was wet after supposedly taking the test.

When asked why his pants were wet, Modrey allegedly told the officer that it was from doing dishes earlier in the day.

Upon a search, the probation officer located a clear plastic tube taped to Modrey's body sealed with duct tape on the ends and a yellow liquid inside, the affidavit states.

Modrey was placed under arrest and allegedly told police that the liquid was water and yellow food coloring used to attempt to pass the drug screening, police said.

He is charged with furnishing drug-free urine use or attempt.
