2 men charged after meth bust

Trevor Lee Brubaker, 19, of New Providence, and Cory Adam Irwin, 34, of Curwensville, are facing drug charges after a methamphetamine bust last week.

The two were arraigned Thursday.

Once taken into custody, Brubaker reportedly told police he brought quantities of methamphetamine into the Clearfield area on five different occasions and sold it for $40 per quarter gram. He said he could charge people for more because his meth is “so good,” according to the affidavit.

He reportedly went on to tell police he was a “good dealer” because his product “gets people hooked,” but he isn’t addicted to it. He also said he used his girlfriend, Julie Fogel’s phone to arrange drug sales, and offered to show police the evidence.

Fogel gave consent for police to search her phone, then told them that Brubaker was involved in the sale of illegal drugs throughout Pennsylvania.

She allegedly told police that earlier that evening she and Brubaker had stopped at a residence in Lawrence Township where Irwin, who was traveling around Clearfield with them, sold meth in exchange for Xanax pills that he and Brubaker were going to split.

According to the report, Irwin had 50 pills identified as Xanax on him. A total of $2,413 was seized from the vehicle and Brubaker had 30 grams of a crystallized substance that is suspected to be methamphetamine. It was sent to a lab for confirmation.

Brubaker is charged with felony counts of dealing in proceeds of unlawful activity, criminal use of communication facility, two counts of manufacture/delivery/possession of a controlled substance, and misdemeanor counts of intentional possession of a controlled substance and possession of drug paraphernalia. He is incarcerated on $250,000 bail.

Irwin is charged with two felony counts of manufacture/delivery/possession with intent to deliver a controlled substance and misdemeanor counts of intentional possession of a controlled substance and possession of drug paraphernalia. Irwin is being held in lieu of $100,000 bail.

Both men are scheduled for preliminary hearings on Wednesday during centralized court.

No charges have yet been filed against Fogel, according to online court documents.
