Court documents indicate the following criminal charges against 25-year-old Zachary Scott Hall were waived for court on Tuesday, July 30:

– Manufacture, Delivery, or Possession With Intent to Manufacture or Deliver, Felony
– Criminal Use Of Communication Facility, Felony 3

– Int. Possession of Controlled Substance, Misdemeanor
– Use/Possession Of Drug Paraphernalia, Misdemeanor

The charges have been transferred to the Clarion County Court of Common Pleas.

Hall is currently free on $5,000.00 unsecured bail.

The charges stem from a controlled purchase arranged by CNET officers on April 4, 2019.

Details of the case:

According to a criminal complaint filed by Detective Wright, CNET conducted a controlled purchase of one-half gram of crystal methamphetamine from Zachary Scott Hall in exchange for $100.00 in pre-recorded U.S. currency utilizing a confidential informant (CI) to execute the purchase.

Investigators obtained photographs of Snapchat messages between the CI and Hall arranging the purchase at a location in Elk Township. The CI and an undercover detective arrived at the arranged location and Hall arrived in a maroon Mitsubishi Eclipse a short time later. The CI exited the undercover vehicle and approached the driver’s side window of Hall’s vehicle, then walked around to the front passenger seat of Hall’s vehicle.

The complaint notes that the CI got into the vehicle and then exited it a short time later. Hall then allegedly yelled out the window saying the CI had paid for two bags and only took one, and the CI then walked over and Hall handed the CI another bag through the window. The CI then turned both bags over to the detective.

The charges were filed against Hall on Thursday, July 11, through Magisterial District Judge Amy Long Turk’s office.

The following charges from a June 27, 2019 incident were also waived for court on July 30:

– Intentional Possession Controlled Substance By Person Not Registered, Misdemeanor
– Use/Possession Of Drug Paraphernalia, Misdemeanor
