Mandatory arraignment scheduled for Tuesday in the Fulton County Court of Common Pleas will be continued at a later date for a Fort Littleton area man accused of drug possession.

Nathan R. Duvall of 176 Old Township Road, Fort Littleton, was initially charged by Pennsylvania State Police from Hollidaysburg with two counts of violating the Controlled Substance, Drug, Device and Cosmetic Act in connection with several controlled buys and a search of his home on September 10. The charges include manufacture, delivery or possession with intent to manufacture or deliver, and possession of a controlled substance.

Charging documents filed indicate an undercover officer made two controlled purchases of marijuana from Duvall. The subsequent search of Duvall’s Dublin Township home revealed two pounds of suspected marijuana in a gun storage room. Eight additional pounds of marijuana were located in the basement.

According to the affidavit of probable cause, undercover officers also discovered drug paraphernalia in the gun storage room as well as $1,885 in cash in a kitchen cabinet.

Officers found nine marijuana plants growing in a field across from a residence that Duvall, 51, allegedly admitted were his. Two more plants were also discovered on the property.

The suspected marijuana was sent to be tested at the state police crime laboratory located in Harrisburg.

Duvall is represented in court proceedings by defense attorney Trudy Ann Mintz.
