JEFFERSON CO., Pa. (EYT) – A Homer City man busted selling methamphetamine to confidential informants in Punxsutawney is due in court next Tuesday.

Court documents indicate 60-year-old Timothy Pierre Storms is scheduled to stand for a preliminary hearing in front of Magisterial District Judge Jacqueline J. Mizerock at 9:45 a.m. on Tuesday, January 4, 2022, on the following charges:

– Manufacture, Delivery, or Possession With Intent to Manufacture or Deliver, Felony (two counts)

The charges stem from an undercover operation in Punxsutawney in March.

Details of the case:

According to a criminal complaint, on March 2, a confidential informant (C.I.) informed agents of the Jefferson County Drug Task Force that he/she could assist in the purchase of methamphetamine from Timothy Pierre Storms.

The complaint indicates the C.I. arranged a purchase of an “8 ball” of methamphetamine from Storms in exchange for $200.00.

According to the complaint, task force agents then observed as the C.I. met with Storms in Punxsutawney and made the exchange of $200.00 in official prerecorded funds for a fast-food bag containing 3.74 grams of methamphetamine.

Task force agents were then contacted by another C.I. who stated he/she could assist in the purchase of methamphetamine from Timothy Pierre Storms on March 10, according to the second complaint.

The C.I. arranged a meeting in Punxsutawney to purchase an “8 ball” of methamphetamine from Storms in exchange for $200.00, plus paying off some of the C.I.’s “debt” to Storms, the complaint indicates.

Task force agents then observed as the C.I. met with Storms and made the exchange of $250.00 in official prerecorded funds for two ziplock bags containing a combined total of 3.74 grams of methamphetamine.

The charges were filed against Storms through Magisterial District Judge Jacqueline J. Mizerock’s office on October 29.
