Heroin suspect waives preliminary hearing in Montour County

DANVILLE — A man will face court action on charges of possessing heroin and possessing drug paraphernalia March 18 in Danville.

Brandon Damien Comeau, 29, who had been confined to the Mifflin County Jail in Lewistown, waived his right to a preliminary hearing Monday before Montour County District Judge Marvin Shrawder.

Danville police charged him after a state police crime lab found items seized containing heroin May 29. Police took 13 items to the lab April 11.

Police received a call from Montour County Chief Deputy Sheriff Clair Heath asking them to come to Apt. C-2 at 516 Mill St.

Probation Chief Jim Miller told police he received information from Comeau’s aunt that she destroyed a number of needles and flushed a number of pills down the toilet. Miller said he got a call from Comeau’s uncle that Comeau wouldn’t be coming to his probation appointment because Comeau’s drug dealer from Williamsport was at his apartment and Comeau was planning on “shooting up,” according to the charges.

After Comeau didn’t show up for the appointment, Miller and Heath went to Comeau’s apartment where they found Comeau.

Police found six glassine packets in a TV stand in the bedroom, a trail pocket knife, a rolled up $1 bill from the TV stand, five $1 bills on the floor alongside the TV stand, a silver spoon with black residue on the bottom, a needle plunger, 15 glassine packets and two plastic baggies in a bathroom trash can and a TracFone in the living room.
