CLEARFIELD — A Clearfield County man has been charged with corruption of minors for allegedly giving cannabis-laced gummies to two juveniles.

According to Curwensville Police, 39-year-old Justin Hammond is currently an EMT and volunteer firefighter, and he previously served as the borough’s animal control officer.

Hammond is accused of offering the gummies to both junior firefighters at the Curwensville fire hall.

One of the victims claims that Hammond demanded that he take the gummy for his anxiety.

Both victims say that Hammond instructed them to not tell the police or Children and Youth Services.

Hammond will have a preliminary hearing on December 6th.
