girardville man meth trafficking federal charge

Another Schuylkill County has entered a guilty plea on a federal charge that he trafficked meth locally.

Information from the US Attorney’s Office for the Middle District of Pennsylvania reveals 34-year-old David Collazo, 34, and formerly of Girardville, pleaded guilty on July 1 to a federal charge of possession with intent to deliver meth.

The penalty for this charge is a minimum of 10 years in prison. His sentencing will happen at a later date.

Collazo joins Tyler Kegolis, also of Schuylkill County, who recently pleaded guilty to a similar charge.

Acting US Attorney Bruce Brandler says Collazo admitted to having “highly pure” crystal meth on him with intent to sell it from December 2018 until February 2019.

The FBI, Pennsylvania State Police, and the Schuylkill County Drug Task Force all had a hand in investigating Collazo’s case.

The investigation was part of Project Safe Neighborhoods, which was restarted back in 2017.
