Criminal complaints were filed in Magisterial District Judge Timothy P. Schill’s office on two separate drug-related cases.

Case Against Shayla Ganci and Richard Ganci, III, of Tionesta

According to a criminal complaint filed by Trooper Needham, of Punxsutawney-based State Police, 27-year-old Shayla Lynn Ganci, of Tionesta, allegedly agreed to sell a confidential informant (C.I.) five bag of methamphetamine for $100.00.

The complaint states that a meeting was arranged for Tuesday, January 10, at the intersection of Pine Hollow Road and State Route 36, in Washington Township, Clarion County.

According to the complaint, Shayla Ganci and 27-year-old Richard Lewis Ganci, III, of Tionesta, met with the C.I. and Trooper Needham in an undercover vehicle. Richard Ganci then made the exchange of drugs for money with Trooper Needham.

At the station, Trooper Needham identified both people by JNET photographs.

Following an investigation, Shayla Ganci and Richard Ganci were arrested on March 1 and arraigned at Judge Schill’s office.

Shayla Ganci was charged with the following offenses:

- Manufacture, Delivery, or Possession With Intent to Manufacture or Deliver, Felony (two counts)
- Criminal Use Of Communication Facility, Felony 3

Richard Ganci faces the following charges:

- Manufacture, Delivery, or Possession With Intent to Manufacture or Deliver, Felony
- Intentional Possession Controlled Substance By Person Not Registered, Misdemeanor

Unable to post $25,000.00 monetary bail each, both individuals were lodged in the Clarion County Jail.

Preliminary hearings are scheduled for March 7 at 10:00 a.m. in front of Judge Schill.

Case Against Joseph Adam Brosius and Elizabeth Carol Ganci

According to a criminal complaint, while on stationary patrol on Saturday, February 18, on Interstate 80 at the westbound 61.4 mile marker, Trooper Allison, of Clarion-based State Police, initiated a traffic stop on 24-year-old Joseph Adam Brosius, of Hawthorn, who was driving a red Dodge Caravan. Twenty-two-year-old Elizabeth Carol Ganci, of Tionesta, was in the front passenger seat.

The complaint state that Allison discovered felony drug warrants on both from an arrest on January 20. As Allison approached the van, he could smell marijuana, and after searching Brosius, found a roll of currency that totaled $669.00 in his front pocket.

Both individuals were taken into custody. Brosius asked that the van be pulled off the road, rather than being towed. As Trooper Allison entered the vehicle to pull it off the roadway, he discovered two syringes, according to the complaint.
