A Minersville man had more than $103,000 in cash on him when police took him down for dealing meth in the borough.

Robert Kull told police he made all that cash from buying large quantities of meth and breaking it down into smaller bags to sell to people in Minersville.

But instead of using any sort of scale to weigh out the bags he sold, Kull told police he would “eyeballs” the bags before selling them.

It may not be good drug-dealing business, in theory, but it was good enough to accumulate a massive stash of cash.

When police finally caught up with him, Kull had $103,274 in cash on him. And ironically, when he was finally busted on Sept. 29, Kull was in possession of a digital scale.

Minersville Meth Dealer Busted with More Than $100K in Cash

When police executed a search warrant on Kull’s residence on N. Second St. in Minersville on the 29th, they found him with all that cash, plus the scale he admitted that he didn’t use, plus 3 bags filled with about 4 grams of meth.

Kull told police he routinely bought larger quantities of meth, between a half-ounce and ounce at a time. He said he’d just purchased a half-ounce of meth from someone in Pottsville but hadn’t sold it yet.

Before selling the meth he buys in bulk, Kull breaks it down into smaller sizes to traffic it around Minersville.

When police took Kull into custody, they also performed a field test on the drugs they collected at the scene and confirmed it was meth.

Kull will be facing felony drug trafficking charges. Court records haven’t been updated on him at the time of this report.
