DuBois, PA – Two people accused of selling cocaine to an undercover officer have waived their rights to preliminary hearings.

21-year-old Nicholas McElwee of DuBois and 19-year-old Hayden Cockrell both face felony drug charges for the manufacture, delivery or possession with intent to deliver a controlled substance.

McElwee’s bail was lowered from $25,000 monetary to $25,000 unsecured.
