DuBois man arrested with meth on warrant | News

DuBOIS — A local man is facing drug charges after being arrested in possession of 3.8 grams of methamphetamine during an arrest on outstanding warrants.

DuBois City Police charged Jamian Douglas Fleming, 48, of DuBois, with one felony count of manufacture, delivery or possession with intent to manufacture or deliver; one misdemeanor count of possession of a controlled substance and one misdemeanor count of use/possession of drug paraphernalia, according to a criminal complaint filed in the office of Judicial District Judge David Meholick on May 3.

On April 29, a DuBois city police officer was sitting in the parking lot of the laundromat on West Long Avenue, watching vehicle and pedestrian traffic, when he saw a man – known to the officer as Fleming. As he walked past the vehicle, the officer noticed a change in Fleming’s behavior, allegedly caused by the police presence.

The officer confirmed Fleming had three active warrants and arrested him in West Spruce Alley. Fleming was told to “stop” due to his active arrest warrants, to which he allegedly said, “Get out of here.” I just got out of prison. » While in custody, a search was conducted, which resulted in the discovery of a hypodermic syringe in Fleming’s left front pocket and a clear plastic bag containing a crystal substance in his right front pocket, according to the affidavit of probable cause. The substance reportedly had the same consistency as methamphetamine.

Fleming was quoted as saying, “I’m just trying to move a little product.” »

He was transported to the DuBois City Police Department for further processing. As he prepared to be transported to the Clearfield County Jail, Fleming allegedly told police multiple times, “I’m not selling this.” » He was transported to prison due to his outstanding arrest warrants.

The suspected methamphetamine was tested using the NIK testing system and was found to be positive for methamphetamine. It weighed 3.8 grams, a little more than an “eight ball”. According to police, it is common for street dealers to possess them.

Fleming’s preliminary hearing is set for May 31 at Meholick’s office.
