A Pottsville man pleaded guilty in federal court this week to dealing “high-quality” meth in Schuylkill County in 2022.
The US Justice Dept. announced Thursday that Javier Guzman, 51, entered a guilty plea on the drug charge in U.S. District Court for the Middle District of Pennsylvania on Wednesday.
The Justice Dept. says Guzman admitted to possessing between 50-200 grams of “high-quality crystal methamphetamine” which he intended to distribute in Schuylkill County last year.
To nab Guzman, the Justice Dept. says it had investigators make purchases off Guzman. The FBI and Schuylkill County Drug Task Force conducted the investigation.
The investigation is part of Project Safe Neighborhoods.
The charge Guzman pleaded guilty to carries a maximum sentence of 20 years in prison and a term of supervised release along with a fine.
