A DuBois man was jailed on drug charges for allegedly having 34 bags of heroin and drug paraphernalia when he was stopped by state police for a traffic violation in Manor on Saturday.

David William Anthony, 48, of Lincoln Drive, was accused of being in possession of the drugs when the driver of the car he was in, Billie Kniseley, 36, of Reynoldsville, was pulled over for improperly displaying registration and inspection stickers on Route 422.

After giving police a fake name, Anthony told police he had the heroin in the car's glove box, a police report said. Police found two syringes and other paraphernalia in the car, according to the report.

Anthony faces a felony charge of possession of a controlled substance with intent to manufacture or deliver, and misdemeanor charges of possession of a controlled substance and possession of drug paraphernalia.

District Judge Gary DeComo committed Anthony to the Armstrong County Jail in lieu of $25,000 bond.

As of Monday afternoon, no charges had been filed against Kniseley. Anthony's preliminary hearing had not been scheduled.
