A Hyde man accused of selling cocaine to undercover agents on two occasions waived his preliminary hearing before Magisterial District Judge Richard Ireland at yesterday's session of Centralized Court held at the Clearfield County Jail.
Kimm Wisor, 50, of Hyde is charged with two counts of criminal conspiracy/manufacture, delivery or possession with intent to manufacture or deliver a controlled substance; two counts of manufacture, delivery or possession with intent to manufacture or deliver a controlled substance; two counts of criminal use of a communication facility; and two counts of intentional possession of a controlled substance by a person not registered.
According to the affidavit of probable cause, the state Office of the Attorney General, Bureau of Narcotics Investigation and Drug Control, conducted an investigation using confidential informants to facilitate several controlled drug buys from the defendant.
On April 26, the CI made arrangements to purchase two grams of cocaine for $200 and made arrangements for them to meet him along Spruce Street near Jack's Distributor's. The CI and two undercover agents met Wisor at the prescribed location at 2:20 p.m., and Wisor and his girlfriend got into the CI's vehicle and the five of them drove onto state Route 879 toward Curwensville.
Wisor then instructed them to turn off SR 879 onto Spruce Street and to park near Clearfield Wholesale Paper where an agent provided Wisor with $200 for the purchase of cocaine.
Wisor then exited the vehicle, walked up Spruce Street and made a call on his cellular phone. At 2:30 p.m. agents witnessed Wisor meet with an unknown black male who retrieved something from his pocket. Wisor then got back into the vehicle and handed an agent two baggies of cocaine.
Wisor also obtained some cocaine for himself, and he and the woman prepared some of it for intravenous use and began injecting themselves with the cocaine while in the back seat of the CI's vehicle. They remarked on the good quality of the cocaine and how it gave "ear ringers."
The agents then began asking Wisor about drug use such as the correct weight for an "eight ball" of cocaine and how to make methamphetamines. Wisor also asked the agent to provide him with some Ephedrine pills if they obtained some for themselves.
The CI then dropped Wisor and his girlfriend off at a friend's residence along River Road.
Agents determined the cocaine obtained had a weight of 2.3 grams and a field test came up positive for cocaine. It was then sent to the state police crime lab for analysis.
On May 8, an agent using a CI set up another controlled buy to purchase two more grams of cocaine from Wisor.
The agent and the CI met Wisor and his girlfriend at Wisor's residence in Hyde at 8:05 p.m. The three of them talked while Wisor attempted to contact his source of cocaine.
Wisor asked the CI to take them to Northwest Savings Bank and the three of them traveled there where his girlfriend went to the ATM and withdrew some money. They stopped at several other locations as well. At approximately 9 p.m. they were informed that the cocaine would be delivered to Wisor at the Rainbow Carwash in Hyde.
Wisor was paid $200 and upon arrival at the carwash, Wisor exited the CI's vehicle and got into the rear of a Ford Taurus registered to a Philadelphia man.
Wisor exited the Taurus and re-entered the CI's vehicle and handed them a bag of cocaine.
The CI then dropped Wisor and his girlfriend off at his home in Hyde.
Another undercover agent followed the Ford Taurus until it reached the Family Dollar Store when they broke off surveillance.
The suspected cocaine was found to have a weight of 1.7 grams and a field test found it to be positive and it was sent to the crime lab for further analysis.
Wisor is incarcerated in the Jefferson County Jail in lieu of $50,000 straight bail.
In other cases, Michael Lefebvre, 55, of Houtzdale, who is charged with indecent exposure and open lewdness, waived his right to a preliminary hearing before Judge Ireland yesterday.
According to the affidavit of probable cause, on Aug. 28, the male victim reported he was jogging in Houtzdale by the Wreck Center when he saw a male in a bright yellow shirt with his shorts pulled down, exposing himself.
The man was also making a lewd gesture towards him with his hands. The victim asked Lefebvre why he was doing this and he responded by saying he was doing it because he liked him. The victim told him it was illegal and Lefebvre said he knew it was.
The victim then jogged home and called the police.
Lefebvre is free on $10,000 unsecured bail.
