Collegeville man charged with drug delivery and overdose of Perkiomen man

NORRISTOWN, Pa. - A 19-year-old man has been arrested on the criminal homicide charge of drug delivery resulting in death, related to the overdose death of Justin Service, 20, of Perkiomen Township. 

Service purchased a bag of fentanyl from Patrick Yahner, of Collegeville. An autopsy determined the cause of Service's death was the fentanyl toxicity. 

The incident occurred in April, when Pennsylvania State Police responded shortly after 11 a.m. to an overdose on Tudor Road in Perkiomen Township. When they arrived they discovered a deceased male, which was Service, in the basement of the residence. 

Yahner was arraigned Monday before Judge Albert Augustine, who denied bail. 

He remains at the Montgomery County Correctional Facility and a preliminary hearing is set for Oct. 31.
