Palmer man allegedly caught with cash, an array of pot styles

Police said he had liquid and wax marijuana

PALMER TWP., Pa. - Authorities allege they found a Palmer Township man parked in a Dunkin’ Donuts parking lot with an array of pot styles and nearly $1,000 in his pockets.

Dylan P. McGeehan, of Old Orchard Drive, faces drug charges following his arrest Monday afternoon at the doughnut shop at 2926 William Penn Highway. District Judge Daniel Corpora arraigned the 22-year-old, setting bail at $35,000.

A Palmer Township police officer pulled into the lot shortly after 1:30 p.m. and spotted a car backed into a parking spot. As he drove by, the driver and passenger made eye contact with the officer, according to court records. He circled the building again and parked next to the car.

The officer first spoke with McGeehan, who was sitting in the passenger seat. Police said he seemed nervous, stuttering a few times when answering questions.

He told police that his friend picked him up at his house, and that they had plans on grabbing a bite to eat and playing a little hacky sack, according to court records. He also noted that the backpack on the floor between his legs was not his, according to records.

The 17-year-old driver, who also appeared nervous, told the officer he picked up McGeehan at the park. When asked if McGeehan was the owner of the backpack, the teen said he wasn’t sure, but said it wasn’t his.

The driver initially refused to allow the officer to search his car. When told a police K9 might be on the way, he allegedly admitted to having liquid marijuana in the driver’s side door. Police found a plastic box marked with a “$” and a wax marijuana packet inside marked “Underworld Extracts.”

Inside the backpack, police found three sandwich baggies containing 62 grams of pot, seven 1-ounce marijuana wax packets marked “Underworld Extracts,” an electronic vape smoker, three containers of liquid marijuana and three sealed packets of injectable liquid marijuana and a syringe with no needle.

Police said McGeehan also had $880 in his pocket. The officer arrested McGeehan and the teen; court records make no mention of any charges against the 17-year-old.

Police charged McGeehan with a felony count of possession with intent to deliver and misdemeanor counts of marijuana possession, possession of drug paraphernalia and corruption of minors. He failed to post bail and was sent to Northampton County Prison to await a preliminary hearing scheduled for May 22.
