October 1, 2018

Police officers seized a significant amount of drugs from two passengers in a vehicle stop on Plank Road on Saturday.

Geraldine Maus, 48, of Boswell, stands charged for drug violations and surrender of license. Michael Greathouse, 22, of Somerset, will be charged with possession of drug paraphernalia and a firearm violation, according to an information release by the Somerset Borough Police Department.

During the traffic stop of a car driven by Blaine Ashbrook, 42, of Hooversville, officers searched the vehicle. Greathouse had a 25 caliber semiautomatic firearm that was loaded with six rounds. It was concealed, but he didn’t possess a license to carry a concealed firearm. A continued search of a bag belonging to Greathouse showed multiple pieces of drug paraphernalia including lightbulbs designed to smoke illicit drugs, syringes, Narcan and a multi-colored smoking pipe.

Maus was found with two small bags of crystal methamphetamine, straws, pieces of heroin stamp bags and one stamp bag that still had powder inside the bag.
