EMPORIUM, Pa. (WTAJ) — A confidential informant who told police about an Emporium man selling more meth led to a drug bust in Cameron County.
Brandon Catalone, 37, who was recently arrested for having drugs and brass knuckles, was reportedly selling meth and heroin from a garage at 110 S. Spruce Street in Emporium borough.
After the informant came forward and told police that Catalone was “moving more meth than they have ever seen” a case was opened with the Office of the Attorney General. Through investigating, police said that many witnesses/neighbors in the area complained about all the foot traffic. Police also noted they watched a number of known drug users go in and out of the garage.
Police set up a buy with an informant. The informant gave Catalone $240 for an “8 ball” of meth. After returning to the station, police said the substance tested positive for meth and weighed approximately 3.4 grams.
