CLEARFIELD – An Osceola Mills man has been accused of conspiring to sell methamphetamine to a confidential informant in September of last year.
Gary J. Klinger Jr., 24, has been charged by the Pennsylvania State Police with felony conspiracy/manufacture, delivery or possession with intent to manufacture or deliver and criminal use of communication facility.
Klinger waived his right to a preliminary hearing Wednesday during centralized court at the Clearfield County Jail. His bail is set at $25,000.
According to the affidavit of probable cause, on Sept. 26, 2018, a trooper met with a CI who related he/she could purchase methamphetamine from Klinger.
The CI text-messaged Klinger and arranged the purchase of $80 worth of the drug. The trooper then drove the CI to the area of Curtin and Edwards streets in Osceola Mills Borough.

Potter handed the CI a bag of suspected methamphetamine, and was paid with the provided funds. When the CI returned to the vehicle, he/she turned the drug over to the trooper.
Potter, 21, of Osceola Mills has also been charged with felony manufacture, delivery or possession with intent to manufacture or deliver and misdemeanor intentional possession of a controlled substance and use/possession of drug paraphernalia.
