Three people will stand trial on drug charges after they were allegedly found squatting in a vacant Charleroi apartment.

Laurel McFeely, 39, of 1011 McKean Ave., Jennifer Wells, 30, of 717 8th St., both of Charleroi, and William Sezawich, 35, of 567 Bow St., Stockdale, appeared in court Thursday.

McFeely and Wells both waived their rights to preliminary hearings before Magisterial District Judge Larry Hopkins in Charleroi. McFeely was charged with a felony count of criminal trespass and six misdemeanor counts of use/possession of drug paraphernalia. Wells was charged with a felony count of criminal trespass and five misdemeanor counts of use/possession of drug paraphernalia.

Sezawich was held for court by Hopkins following a hearing on a felony count of criminal trespass and five counts of use/possession of drug paraphernalia.

The three were charged after Charleroi Regional Police were called Dec. 15 to an apartment at 726 Lincoln Ave. The landlord called police after she saw one of the doors broken down and heard people inside, according to an affidavit of probable cause. The apartment was vacant and all of the utilities were shut off, the landlord told police.

Sezawich reportedly told police he lived at the apartment, the complaint states. During a search, police allegedly found miscellaneous drug paraphernalia, including empty stamp bags of suspected heroin. A gallon jug inside the residence was full of urine, the affidavit states.
