A Crucible man was arraigned Wednesday afternoon for allegedly selling methamphetamine at a Greene County bar and driving there under the influence of marijuana with a child.
Brian Keith Karadavut, 31, of Second Street is charged with possession with intent to deliver, endangering the welfare of children, DUI, possession of a controlled substance and possession of drug paraphernalia.
According to the affidavit of probable cause filed in his case, Greene County Regional Police observed Karadavut sell meth to a man at a table at Huddle House Restaurant in Mount Morris at about 7:30 p.m. June 6. He was found with $440 cash and a pipe used for smoking narcotics.
He motioned to a car with a 12-year-old boy and a dog inside, saying he drove to the restaurant with the boy because the boy “was having family issues and needed to talk,” Officer Spencer P. Griffith wrote in the affidavit. Police allegedly found a smoking device with suspected marijuana in it inside the car. The boy’s mother was called to take her son home, according to court documents.
Karadavut reportedly admitted to smoking marijuana before driving to the restaurant. Police said Karadavut also had an active arrest warrant through Cumberland Township Police and did not have a valid driver’s license.
He was arraigned before Magisterial District Judge David Curt Balint, who set bail at $75,000. Karadavut remains in Greene County jail, unable to post bail.
