Fred Wheaton, Wysox

Charles Todd Malenke, 45, LeRaysville, faces charges for delivery of a controlled substance and for possession of drug paraphernalia, after Malenke summoned police to his home at about 10:30 a.m. on March 19 to quell a domestic dispute between him and a person known to him. Police allege that Malenke was prescribed Oxycodone, which he shared with the other person via syringes, "burn foil spoons" and additional paraphernalia that were in plain view when officers arrived at the home. Malenke was arraigned on $25,000 bail and was slated for a March 30 preliminary hearing.

Timothy Joseph Blood, 40, Wyalusing, faces prosecution for simple assault and harassment stemming from a reported domestic dispute at his Wilmot Township home on March 20. Police, who responded at approximately 7 a.m., allege that the victim incurred bruising, swelling and scratches, which were photographed. Blood was released on non-monetary bail and faces an April 6 preliminary hearing.

Frank Erick Cardenas, 19, Mexia, TX, faces prosecution for underage drinking, DUI and additional traffic violations stemming from a traffic stop on Route 6 between Standing Stone and Wysox Townships around 9:30 p.m. on Feb. 14. A person following Cardenas phoned police and reported that he had witnessed the defendant crossing the double yellow and white fog lines numerous times, as well as driving at erratic speeds and once coming to a near stop for no apparent reason. Police caught up with Cardenas as he was re-entering the highway from a parking lot and pulled him over due to suspicious activity and expired registration. Cardenas allegedly failed field sobriety tests and was taken to Towanda Memorial Hospital, where a blood test yielded a BAC result of .220. His preliminary hearing is set for April 13.

Jesse Paul Johnson, Wysox, faces charges for underage DUI and additional traffic offenses after police reported that he was observed driving without his headlights on Route 6 in Wysox Township at approximately 9:30 p.m. on Feb. 24. Johnson, who was 20 years old at the time of the arrest, is alleged to have had a BAC of .071 two hours after being pulled over.
