DuBois – Clearfield County District Attorney, William A. Shaw, Jr., announced today that drug charges have been filed against a Clearfield man.

Shaw identified the defendant as Daniel Robert Peteuil, age 43, of Daisy Street, Clearfield, Pennsylvania.

On June 19, 2019, Corporal Randy Young of the DuBois City Police filed a criminal complaint charging Peteuil with: 1) Person Not To Possess a Firearm, F2, 3 counts; 2) Dealing in Proceeds of Unlawful Activity, F1; 3) Possession with Intent to Deliver a Controlled Substance, F, 5 counts; 4) Possession of a Controlled Substance, M, 5 counts; 5) Possession of Drug Paraphernalia, M; 6) Selling Controlled Substance with No Trade Mark, M.

An affidavit of probable cause filed with the complaint provides that Young was on patrol when he observed a Chevy Malibu traveling on West Park Avenue in the City of DuBois. The Malibu changed lanes multiple times while at an intersection and had dark window tint on all the windows except the windshield. Young conducted a traffic stop and determined Peteuil was on state parole. Young contacted Peteuil’s parole officer who responded to the scene and conducted a search of Peteuil’s vehicle. The parole officer located a loaded handgun and a large amount of U.S. currency. Peteuil was then detained for possessing a firearm after having a prior conviction.

During a further search of the Malibu, Young recovered approximately 1 pound of marijuana, 349 grams of heroin, 238 grams of cocaine, 58 grams of methamphetamines, 138 grams of a white flakey substance. Also located were three handguns, approximately $45,552.00 in U.S. currency, ammunition, smoking devices, and drug paraphernalia.

The criminal complaint has been filed with Magisterial District Judge, J. Michael Morris. Peteuil is scheduled to be arraigned by Morris on Thursday June 20, 2019. A preliminary hearing will be scheduled for Friday June 28, 2019. Peteuil remains lodged in SCI Benner on a parole detainer.

Shaw explained that this was a significant arrest removing a large volume of drugs from the streets of DuBois City. Shaw thanked Corporal Young and the DuBois City Police Department for their outstanding efforts to identify and arrest drug dealers in our community. Shaw said the vigilance of Corporal Young to follow through and investigate an obscure traffic stop resulted in a major drug bust.
