Drugs found in search of Beaver County home, state police say
A Beaver County man was arrested Friday after state police searched his New Brighton home and found what troopers described as “an elaborate marijuana grow operation” in the basement.
Jonathan Paul Duddy, 27, was arraigned on charges of manufacturing, delivery or possession with intent to deliver drugs and related crimes. He couldn't post bail and was placed in the Beaver County Prison to await a preliminary hearing scheduled Thursday, court records show.
State police from the Troop D vice unit and Beaver barracks went to the home, along with borough police, and found a quantity of plants and what police believe is packaged marijuana. The plants and contents of the packages were sent to the crime lab for verification, troopers said.
