Curwensville, PA – More details are emerging about a Curwensville couple who was accused of selling drugs and having explosives and a sawed-off shotgun in their home with five children.

37-year-old Wayne Bambarger and 32-year-old April Bambarger are facing multiple drugs and weapons charges.

These charges include the manufacture, delivery, or possession with intent to manufacture or deliver, intentional possession of a controlled substance, corruption of minors, making repairs or selling and offensive weapon, and possession of a firearm with the manufacturer number altered.

On Nov. 25, a 14-year-old girl and her father came to the police to report that the girl’s mother, April Bambarger, had been selling methamphetamine, pills, and marijuana since July. The mother was having financial difficulties, declared bankruptcy, and began selling drugs to get her family out of debt.

One of the children in the home is prescribed ADHD medication, but the mother reportedly did not allow her to take the pills so they could be sold instead.

Police searched the house and found two baggies of meth, multiple baggies of marijuana, and a bottle of assorted, unidentified pills. These drugs were packaged as though they were ready to be sold.

Along with the drugs, police found two quarter sticks of explosive material and a sawed-off shotgun with the serial number filed off.

Five children lived in the home, all of whom were under the age of 16.

Wayne and April Bambarger’s bail is set at $50,000 each. Their preliminary hearing are scheduled for Dec. 6.
