Police: Youngwood man found with 2 pounds of marijuana
A Youngwood man who served time on juvenile probation in connection with a 2014 stabbing was arrested this week after police found him with about 2 pounds of marijuana, according to investigators.
Earl S. Keim, 21, is being held at the Westmoreland County Prison on $60,000 bail. He is charged with possession with intent to deliver, marijuana possession and possession of drug paraphernalia.
Greensburg police and Westmoreland County detectives served a search warrant at Keim’s South Eighth Street home around 11 a.m. Wednesday. They found the drugs, a digital scale, $1,325 in cash and numerous bags that were used to ship vacuum-sealed marijuana to him, according to court papers.
Keim did not have an attorney listed in online court records. A preliminary hearing is set for Aug. 13.
He was 17 at the time of the stabbing that happened when he intervened during an altercation between his father and another man, according to previous testimony. Keim initially was charged as an adult with attempted homicide and related offenses, but the case eventually was transferred to juvenile court.
Keim was adjudicated delinquent on assault charges and sentenced to an unspecified probation term. It was unclear when his probation ended. Juvenile supervision can only extend until the person turns 21.
The victim was stabbed three times in the torso and upper chest, according to previous testimony. An out-of-county judge and the state attorney general’s office handled the case.
A separate case in which Keim was accused of marijuana possession was dismissed in 2016 at the request of prosecutors.
Keim is the grandson of the late Westmoreland County Register of Wills Earl Keim II and great-grandson of the late Common Pleas Court Judge Earl Keim Sr.
