| September 30, 2020

OIL CITY, Pa. (EYT) – A Franklin woman is facing felony drug charges after she was reportedly caught in possession of methamphetamine and drug paraphernalia.

Court documents indicate 35-year-old Candice Marie Brethauer is scheduled to stand for a preliminary hearing in front of Magisterial District Judge Matthew T. Kirtland at 8:30 a.m. on Wednesday, September 30, on the following charges:

– Manufacture, Delivery, or Possession With Intent to Manufacture or Deliver, Felony
– Possession of Controlled Substance, Misdemeanor
– Use/Possession Of Drug Paraphernalia, Misdemeanor (three counts)

The charges stem from an incident in Oil City in late August.

According to a criminal complaint, around 11:48 p.m. on August 30, Oil City Police were dispatched to a residence on Cornplanter Avenue for a report of a domestic dispute.

At the residence, police spoke to Candice Brethauer.

According to the complaint, while speaking to Brethauer, the officers noticed the end of what they believed to be a glass methamphetamine pipe sticking out of her waistband.

When asked about the item, Brethauer reportedly stated: “I’m hiding it for him,” and pulled out a glass meth pipe and sat it down, the complaint indicates.

She was then asked if she had any other drugs on her person or in her bag, and she told police that she did not. Police then requested and were granted her permission to look through her bag, the complaint states.

The bag was discovered to contain a portable digital scale, three zip lock baggies of methamphetamine, multiple empty zip lock baggies, and another meth pipe, according to the complaint.

Breslauer was arraigned in front of Magisterial District Judge Matthew T. Kirtland at 12:30 p.m. on September 14.

She remains free on $5,000.00 unsecured bail.
