Man Locked Up After Attempting to Sell Meth to Police

A man is locked up in prison after he attempted to sell methamphetamine to police.

According to Shenandoah Police, on Thursday March 2, 2017, a person mistakenly began texting a police department phone number offering to sell meth. The person identified himself as "Chuck".

On Friday March 3, the police received another message from Chuck saying he would be willing to meet.

On Monday March 6, Police made arrangements to purchase $200.00 worth of methamphetamine from the man through an undercover Pennsylvania State Trooper.  The trooper met with "Chuck" in the 100 block of South Main St Shenandoah and completed the transaction.

The man was taken into custody and the pre-recorded money was recovered along with a ledger, digital scale, packaging material and two more bags of methamphetamine. Chuck was taken back to the Shenandoah Police Station where he identified himself as David McDowell. A check with NCIC revealed no wants or warrants.

Another State Trooper came to the Shenandoah Police station and identified Chuck as Charles Edward McDowell, of Girardville.

Police say Charles had used his brother's name and date-of-birth when first asked by police. When confronted, Charles then admitted to the false name. Another check with NCIC revealed a warrant from Beaver County.

McDowell was charged with Delivery of a controlled substance, Possession with intent to deliver a controlled substance and False identification to law enforcement. He was arraigned by Magisterial District Judge Stephen Bayer and committed to Schuylkill County Prison on $50,000.00 cash bail.
