ST. MARYS, Pa. -- Four people have been charged for allegedly dealing the highly addictive synthetic drug bath salts throughout Elk County.
Pennsylvania Attorney General Kathleen Kane said Tuesday the four people were arrested as a result of an investigation between her office's North Central Municipal Drug Task Force and Elk County District Attorney Shawn McMahon's Office.
Kane said William Dilley, 55, and Jacob Dilley, 21, both of 1340 Poplar Rd., St. Marys, Jeremiah Dilley, 35, of 42 Dippold Ave., St. Marys, and Abby O'Rourke, 30, of 331 1st Ave., Johnsonburg, are facing charges in connection to the alleged drug distribution.
According to investigators, 943 grams of bath salts were seized, with an estimated street value of $200,000.
During William and Jacob Dilley's arrests Monday, an additional 105 grams of bath salts worth $20,000 was seized, Kane said.
William Dilley received a $25,000 unsecured bond and Jacob Dilley received $50,000 straight cash bond following their arrests, Kane said. Jeremiah Dilley and O'Rourke are currently incarcerated and will be arraigned in the coming days.
Kane said in addition to her office, St. Marys Police and investigators with the Elk County District Attorney's Office were also involved in the investigation.
More details on the charges against the four accused:
-- William Dilley: Charged with one count of possession of bath salts, one count of possession with intent to deliver bath salts and one count of criminal conspiracy to deliver bath salts.
