A pair of Schuylkill County men got busted with drugs recently after a blundering getaway attempt.

State Police in Frackville say Brandon Kneas, 33, of Minersville, and an 18-year-old man from Pottsville were involved in a one-vehicle wreck just after 5 a.m. on Friday, July 10. The crash happened along Valley Rd. in Cass Township.

Someone witnessed the crash and called it in to emergency dispatchers.

After crashing their vehicle, Kneas and the other man ran off into the woods. The witness said they heard one of them saying something to the effect of “WE NEED TO GET RID OF THESE DRUGS!” as they ran away.

One of the men dashed off holding a black box.

The getaway didn’t last long, apparently. Police took them into custody and found the black box they apparently ditched in the woods.

The box contained “a large amount” of meth, some weed, a lot of empty baggies, a digital scale, and other drug paraphernalia.

Police charged the 18-year-old in this incident, who was passenger in the vehicle, with marijuana possession.

Kneas, the driver, got some medical treatment and then police brought him back to their station. That’s when Kneas told them he had drugs elsewhere.

According to police, Kneas said he had drugs up his butt. Police did what they had to do and found Kneas hiding meth, weed, and heroin up there.

Kneas now faces a felony charge of drug possession with intent to manufacture or deliver, misdemeanor counts of drug possession, marijuana possession, possession of drug paraphernalia, and DUI.

He’s currently in Schuylkill County Prison, unable to post bail. Kneas has a preliminary hearing on these charges scheduled for July 16 at 9:15 a.m. before District Judge David Rossi.

    Here’s a thought: if you’re trying to get rid of the drugs so the cops don’t find them, don’t yell “We have to get rid of these drugs!” as the cops are chasing you. Also: that’s a lot of drugs to stuff up your hiney, sir.
