Abington youth faces charges for THC-infused candy bars, marijuana, alcohol

An Abington youth was arrested on drug charges Friday night after police allegedly found THC-infused candy bars, marijuana, and alcohol in a vehicle with three youths, according to Abington Police.

Police were called to the Avana Apartment Complex around 11 p.m. to investigate possible drug use by minors and found three individuals in a running vehicle, Abington Police said in a press release. Police searched the vehicle and found a backpack containing THC-infused candy bars, pre-rolled marijuana blunts that were packaged for sale, a digital scale, and several sandwich bags filled with marijuana, according to police. Police also allegedly found alcohol and nearly $5,000 in cash in the vehicle.


One of the youths was charged with several counts of possession with intent to distribute Class C and Class D drugs, the press release said. Police did not name the youth or say how old he was.

Police said the youth was allowed to make a phone call and was overheard saying there was additional money hidden in the vehicle. Shortly afterward, a “female party” posted the youth’s cash bail of $3,540 and allegedly admitted she had found the money in the vehicle, according to police. Police seized the cash, alleging it was “proceeds of illegal narcotics sales,” the press release said.
