Two Arrested for Huffing ‘Duster’ in Brookville

crime-newsBROOKVILLE, Pa. (EYT) – Two Brookville residents are accused of huffing “duster” in Brookville Borough.

According to a criminal complaint, Officer Hollobaugh, of Brookville Police Department, arrested 34-year-old William Jarrod Boyer, of Brookville, and 32-year-old Kristin Marie Munn, of Brookville, after an alleged incident of “huffing” in a car that was parked behind a warehouse in Brookville.

The complaint states that around 5:22 p.m. on October 12, Officer Hollobaugh was dispatched to a business located on East Main Street on a report of a male “huffing” something in the warehouse located across from the store on Richardsville Road then walking out of the building.

The male was described as wearing dark pants, black tee shirt, long black hair, several body piercings, and tattoos.

When Officer Hollobaugh arrived at the scene, an employee of the store flagged him down and pointed to a vehicle behind the warehouse, the complaint indicates.

Boyer and Munn were in the vehicle and had a can which they allegedly hid under the female’s purse. As they exited the vehicle, both were allegedly having difficulty with their balance and coordination, the complaint continues.

As Officer Hollobaugh was questioning Munn, she asked to use the restroom and went to the passenger rear seat and allegedly grabbed a can and wrapped it in her green cloth purse, attempting to hide it. When questioned, Munn showed Officer Hollobaugh a green and white bottle of Ultra duster spray. She told Officer Hollobaugh that she “used it to clean an X-box game,” according to the complaint.

After Officer Hollobaugh told Boyer and Munn that he saw them “huffing” when he pulled up in the fully marked police vehicle, they allegedly admitted they were sitting in the rear of the vehicle using the duster spray for “huffing,” the complaint states.

Boyer and Munn were advised they were under arrest for possession and use of a noxious substance for the purpose of “huffing” to get intoxicated, the complaint indicates.

Both suspects face the following charges:

  • Smell/Inhale Toxic Releasing Substances, Misdemeanor 3
  • Possession of Solvent For Release of Toxic Vapors/Fumes, Misdemeanor 3

Unable to post $15,000.00 monetary bail each, they were lodged in the Jefferson County Jail.

Preliminary hearings for both suspects have been scheduled for December 3 in front of Magisterial District Judge Gregory M. Bazylak.
