Details of the case:
According to a criminal complaint, on Thursday, Nov. 1, Officer Murray of the Reynoldsville Borough Police Department was contacted by a known individual in reference to a warrant against Chase M. Slima.
Officer Murray expressed to the individual that she needed to speak to Slima in reference to another incident.
The individual arrived at the station with Slima, who agreed to speak to Officer Murray and sat down with his backpack nearby.
According to the complaint, Slima was slow to respond during the interview, and Officer Murray eventually asked if he had taken any prescription medications that day. Slima replied he had not, and that he was just tired.
Officer Murray then spoke to Slima’s family who said that “Slima had been ‘doing drugs’ for some time and was selling drugs to get money,” according to the complaint,
Officer Murray then spoke to Slima again and, with permission, searched his backpack.
According to the complaint, several unused quart-sized Ziplock bags, a scale, a gallon Ziploc bag containing a small amount of marijuana and several Pure-Whip N20 chargers that Slima admitted he inhaled to get high were discovered in the backpack. Slima also had a pill bottle of Lorazepam that belonged to one of his family members.
The family member reported noticing the pills missing recently and asked Slima if he had taken them, and Slima stated that he did not. When Officer Murray questioned Slima about it, he agreed with that account, the complaint indicates.
According to the complaint, Slima also admitted to selling marijuana, as well as using acid, cocaine and prescription pills.
Slima was arraigned on Thursday, Nov. 8, in Magisterial District Judge David B. Inzana’s office.
