Suspected Fentanyl, Meth Seized During Raid in Minersville

2-year-old found unsupervised in yard at home of raid

Police in Minersville and surrounding areas conducted a raid on a home in the borough Tuesday morning, netting meth and pills believed to be disguised fentanyl.

Three people living in the home at 455 Carbon St. in Minersville were arrested. And a 2-year-old child was put in the care of Schuylkill County Children & Youth Services afterward.

According to criminal complaints filed today before District Judge David Plachko, three people were in the home at the time of the 10 a.m. raid:

  • Jessica Siluk, 29
  • Daniel Wagner, 45
  • Stacey Hummel, 45

After the trio were detained, a search was conducted inside the home.

Police say they found pre-packaged “bulk baggies” containing a suspected 21 grams of methamphetamine, two digital scales, and a “large amount of narcotics packaging materials” in a bedroom shared by Wagner and Hummel.

In a downstairs room, inside a black metal lockbox, police discovered 146 pills branded as Oxycodone M30 inside a bag. Police say the pills are actually fentanyl pressed into pill form. They say one pill could be a lethal dose of the drug.

Four cell phones were also found in the lockbox.

Police say prior to their morning raid, “several” controlled buys were made from Hummel and Wagner. Informants would allegedly contact Hummel, who would then have Wagner, her boyfriend, make the delivery.

Siluk’s 2-year-old child was discovered in the backyard of the home at 455 Carbon St. during the time of the raid. Police say the child was unsupervised and had a “large amount of feces in its diaper” at the time.

All three people caught up in today’s raid in Minersville are each facing a felony charge of possession with intent to deliver and a couple misdemeanor drug charges. Siluk also faces a misdemeanor charge of endangering the welfare of her child.
