A Scranton man was recently arrested for a probation violation from a previous alleged felony incident.
According to the Jefferson Police Department, officers arrested 19-year-old Nicholas Weber Wednesday just before 2pm. An officer knew Weber had an active arrest warrant for a probation violation and saw him go into a residence in the 200 block of North Oak Street. The police report shows Weber locked himself inside the home and refused to come out when officers approached the residence. Officers then made entry into the home after several failed attempts for Weber to comply and come out. Weber was placed under arrest without further incident.
While in the home, officers smelled the odor of marijuana. A search warrant was then executed just after 4pm where several marijuana and other drug-related items were seized. Charges are pending lab test results.
Weber had violated his probation from an alleged incident for which he was arrested earlier this month. Weber was charged with a felony for possession of marijuana with intent to deliver and a misdemeanor for possession of alcohol by an underage person. The charges stemmed from a traffic stop that took place on February 1st. Weber was previously serving probation from an unrelated conviction for a burglary incident in 2018.
Weber was booked into the Greene County Jail. Raccoon Valley Radio will bring you more information as it becomes official.
