Elk County Man Jailed, Facing Drug Charges


RIDGWAY – An Elk County man is facing felony drug possession charges after methamphetamine and other illegal items were allegedly found in his vehicle.

State Police say 38-year-old Duane Walczak of Johnsonburg was pulled over last month for traffic violations. A warranted search of Walczak’s pickup truck turned up two grams of methamphetamine, more than 17 grams of marijuana, and two dozen items considered drug paraphernalia.

After waiving his preliminary hearing rights last week, Walczak was taken to the Elk County Jail. His bail is set at $15,000.
