PCP Sold in Shopping Center Lot, Cops Say
Allentown man accused of selling powerful hallucinogen, also known as Angel Dust, to confidential source at Bethlehem Square Shopping Center.
An Allentown man is accused of three times meeting a confidential source in a Bethlehem Township parking lot to sell quantities of phencyclidine, a powerful hallucinogenic drug commonly known as Angel Dust or PCP, according to court records.
Paul Nigel Logan, 38, of 122 S. Rush St., was arrested Friday by Inspector Salvatore Crisafulli, of the Easton Police Department who was acting on behalf of the Northampton County Drug Task Force, which led the investigation.
According to the court records, Logan met with a confidential source at the Bethlehem Square Shopping Center, 3926 Linden St., on January 31, February 15 and February 24. On each occasion, meeting arrangements were made via a cell phone.
During the first two meetings, Logan allegedly sold 45.6 grams of Angel Dust to the informant for $800, according to the paperwork. On the final meeting, 85.9 grams of PCP were sold for $1,600.
Logan was charged with three counts of delivery of a controlled substance – a first-degree felony – and unlawful use of a communication device.
He was arraigned on those charges before night duty District Judge Patricia Romig-Passaro and committed to Northampton County Prison in lieu of a combined $130,000 bail.
