CLEARFIELD – District Attorney William A. Shaw Jr. has announced Clearfield County’s Fugitive of the Week.
Shaw identified the fugitive as Joni Shawley, 34, of Banion Road, Madera. Shawley is wanted for failure to appear at a Pre-trial Conference on March 31.
On Sept. 25, 2015, Officer Daniel Podliski of the Clearfield Borough Police Department and agents of the Office of the Attorney General, filed a criminal complaint against Shawley. She was charged with delivery of a controlled substance, F, two counts, and criminal use of a communication facility, F3.
According to the affidavit of probable cause, on Jan. 5, 2015, agents received a call from a confidential informant who stated that he/she had contact with an individual, identified as Shawley, who sells prescription medication.
The next day, agents and Podliski met with the CI to set up a purchase of prescription drugs from Shawley. After exchanging a series of text messages and phone calls, the CI allegedly set up a purchase of Adderall and Hydrocodone pills from Shawley.
The CI and an agent then allegedly met with Shawley outside of a local business to complete the drug transaction. The Adderall and Hydrocodone pills, which were purchased, were sent to for laboratory testing.
A preliminary hearing was held Oct. 21, 2015, at which time all charges were held to court. On March 31 Shawley failed to appear at a Pre-trial Conference, and a warrant was issued for her arrest.
Shawley is described as follows a Caucasian female who stands 5 feet, 5 inches tall. She has green eyes and brown hair.
