REYNOLDSVILLE, Pa. (EYT) – The Jefferson County Drug Task Force has filed charges against a Reynoldsville man who is accused of selling marijuana to a confidential informant in Reynoldsville.

According to court documents, the following criminal charges were filed in Magisterial District Judge David B. Inzana’s office against 26-year-old Benjamin Scott Sarvey, of Reynoldsville, on January 2, 2019:

Sarvey has been charged with selling marijuana to a drug task enforcement officer via a confidential informant (C.I.) on December 8, 2017.

According to a criminal complaint, on December 8, 2017, the Jefferson County Drug Task Force and a confidential informant (C.I.) established a controlled buy on one ounce of marijuana, a Schedule 1 Controlled Substance from Benjamin Sarvey.

The details of the exchange were communicated using a cellular telephone device to send and receive text and voice-based communications with Sarvey Facebook messenger, the complaint states.

Originally, the controlled purchase was scheduled to happen at Sarvey’s residence located on Grant Street in Reynoldsville; however, the location was changed to East Main Street in Reynoldsville.

The buy took place at 7:58 p.m.

According to the complaint, Sarvey walked to the driver side of the C.I.’s vehicle and told the C.I. that “they needed to hurry because he had another deal to get to.”

The C.I. was provided with $260.00 in Jefferson County Drug Task Force funds for the exchange.

Sarvy tossed a ziptop sandwich baggie containing a green leafy substance into the C.I.’s vehicle. The baggie weighed approximately 3.5 grams and tested positive on a narcotics identification kit for THC, the complaint states.

A preliminary hearing is scheduled for 10:30 a.m. on February 21, 2019, with Judge Inzana presiding.

A certified summons was issued on January 7, 2019.
