A Lebanon man was arrested by State College police Friday, charged with 10 felony counts of drug possession with intent to deliver.
Nicholas Keener, 20, first came to the attention of authorities in April, when a confidential informant told police that Keener was selling LSD and dimethyltryptamine, both psychedelic drugs. LSD was purchased from Keener during three controlled buys at Keener’s local address, 302 Gerald St., in College Township, police said.
A search warrant was obtained after the third controlled buy on Friday, according to police. Police found drug paraphernalia such as syringes, scales and “smoking devices,” and various drugs, including LSD, Vicodin and marijuana. Street value of the drugs found in the search totaled more than $8,000, according to the Attorney General’s Office.
Keener is also charged with criminal use of a communications facility and misdemeanor possession charges. He is being held at Centre County Correctional Facility on $75,000 monetary bail. A preliminary hearing is scheduled for Wednesday.
