arrestTOBY TWP., Pa. (EYT) – A Strattanville man is facing felony charges for reportedly selling methamphetamine to a confidential informant, as well as allegedly helping a woman attempting to flee house arrest.

Court documents indicate the Clarion-based State Police filed criminal charges against 22-year-old Colton Randall Bowser.

According to a criminal complaint, on November 18, 2019, CNET (Clarion County Narcotics Enforcement Team) made a controlled purchase of crystal methamphetamine from Colton Bowser for $175.00 in U.S. currency.

The complaint states CNET utilized a confidential informant (C.I.) and had CNET officers monitoring the exchange, which occurred in Clarion Township.

The substance Bowser provided tested positive as methamphetamine, a schedule II controlled substance, the complaint notes.

According to a second complaint, on November 26, 2019, CNET made a second controlled purchase of crystal methamphetamine from Colton Bowser for $150.00 in U.S. currency.

The complaint states CNET utilized a confidential informant (C.I.) and had CNET officers monitoring the exchange, which occurred in Clarion Township.

The substance Bowser provided tested positive as methamphetamine, a schedule II controlled substance, the complaint notes.

According to a third criminal complaint, on Wednesday, October 14, 2020, Clarion-based State Police were dispatched to assist Clarion County Probation at a motel in Monroe Township, Clarion County.

At the scene, police were informed that Colton Bowser stated he had picked up Brayanna Aites from her residence in Toby Township. Aites is currently on house arrest on felony charges, and police were informed that her SCRAM ankle monitor bracelet went offline earlier that day.

He told police he used her debit card at an ATM to withdraw $400.00 and went back and gave the card and money to Aites and said Aites then left in a Red Honda Civic with a white male.

The complaint states Bowser told police he drove back to the motel where he was staying and then received a phone call from Aites saying she had cut off her ankle bracelet and left it in the vehicle and needed him to “get rid of it.” He then threw the ankle bracelet in the trees behind the motel.
