East Stroudsburg man convicted of several drug charges

An East Stroudsburg man was found guilty of seven of 11 charges by a jury after a trial before Judge Jonathan D. Grine on Tuesday.

Jaleel Brown, 22, faced felony charges of possession with intent to deliver, delivery of a controlled substance and criminal use of a communication facility as well as three counts of misdemeanor possession and a paraphernalia charge in relation to selling marijuana in State College.

Brown was accused by State College police of selling pot to a confidential informant during two controlled buys, according to the criminal complaint.

Police then obtained a search warrant for Brown’s apartment at Bryce Jordan Towers. The search yielded more than 140 grams of marijuana and drug paraphernalia, including a digital scale, grinder and smoking devices, according to police.

Currency used by the informant during the controlled buys was also found in the apartment, police said.

The jury returned undecided verdicts on two felony possession and delivery charges, one count of criminal use of a communication facility and one misdemeanor possession count. Sentencing is scheduled for June 2.
