Man sentenced up to 10 years for dealing fentanyl

Posted

MILFORD, PA — An area man was sentenced to five to ten years in state prison for the possession with intent to deliver the controlled substance of fentanyl in Pike County Court on Monday May 9, 2022. 

Kyle Conklin, 29, with a last known address of Westfall Township, Pike County, entered a plea to the felony charge of possession with intent to deliver a controlled substance and was immediately sentenced by President Judge Gregory H. Chelak to serve five to 10 years in state prison

Conklin was originally charged in June 2020 after a search warrant was served on a hotel room in Westfall Township, Pike County.  The search warrant and arrest came after an investigation by the Pike County District Attorney’s Office Criminal Investigation Division and member agencies of the Pike County Drug Task Force.

Investigators served a search warrant on a hotel room at a local motel.  In the room investigators located over 120 bags that contained the controlled substances of fentanyl, heroin and tramadol, as well as $ 237.00 in U.S. currency and drug paraphernalia.

The agencies that took part in the investigation and service of the search warrant were the Pike County District Attorney’s Office Criminal Investigation Division, the Eastern Pike Regional Police Department, the Pennsylvania State Police at Blooming Grove and the Pennsylvania State Police vice unit.

Tonkin commended the ongoing effort of law enforcement to investigate drug dealers in our community and the cooperation of hotel management.  Tonkin stated: “Here the management of the hotel went by the phrase “If you see something, say something.”  Hotel management contacted police about their belief of what may be going on inside the hotel room and investigators were able to confirm those beliefs and execute a search warrant on the hotel room.  My office will continue to seek stiff penalties against those who deal the deadly drug fentanyl in our community.”
