DuBois Woman Accused of Selling Meth and Possessing Drugs at Jail Waives Hearings

DUBOIS – A DuBois woman accused of selling methamphetamine and possessing drugs at the jail waived her right to preliminary hearings Friday during centralized court.

Brittany Ann Hibbard, 26, is charged with two felony counts of manufacture/delivery/possession of a controlled substance with intent to deliver, two felony counts of criminal use of communication facility, dealing in proceeds of unlawful activities and intentional possession of a controlled substance in connection with an incident on Aug. 29 in DuBois.

In a second case, she is charged with two felony counts each of contraband and manufacture/delivery/possession of a controlled substance with intent to deliver. She is also charged with two counts of intentional possession of a controlled substance and possession of drug paraphernalia.

She remains in the county jail in lieu of $10,000 bail in the first case and $25,000 in the second case.

According to the affidavit of probable cause in the second case, on Sept. 7 after Hibbard was arrested for the first set of charges, a female officer who searched her at the jail allegedly found methamphetamine, amphetamine and dextroamphetamine.

Hibbard gave consent for the officers to search her residence. There they found drug paraphernalia, grinders, digital scales and baggies in a tin can.

Hibbard’s boyfriend, Andrew James Glover, 33, who also lived at the residence told police these items belonged to him. He admitted he “smoked weed” but said that was all he did.

When Hibbard was questioned about Glover, she said he knew all about the drug deals and with the money she makes, he purchases marijuana. She also told police that he helps her sell marijuana and sometimes retrieves it for her.

Glover, 33, is charged with criminal conspiracy/possession with intent to deliver a controlled substance and possession of drug paraphernalia. He also waived his right to a preliminary hearing Friday. He is in the county jail in lieu of $25,000 bail.

According to the affidavit in the original drug sale case, on Aug. 29 an undercover agent sent a message to Hibbard telling her he was looking for some “ice cream” meaning methamphetamine.

After several more text messages, they arranged a purchase of two grams of methamphetamine for $300. As the agent waited at a location on West Long Avenue in DuBois, he text-messaged her again and she suggested he walk toward her home on South Jared Street.

A police officer who was watching Hibbard’s residence, saw her walk out and sit down on the front steps. The agent arrived and sat beside her as they made the exchange. The agent then walked back to another location where he was picked up.

The location where the purchase was made was less than half a block from a school bus stop where students were dropped off just a few minutes later.
