One Arrested After Raid Yields Methamphetamine

A man was arrested early this morning after a police raid of his West Ward residence turned up methamphetamine, the Easton Police Department reports.

Jacob Boyd, 34, of 1406 Butler St. is charged with possession with intent to distribute methamphetamine and possession of drug paraphernalia, police said. Approximately $600 of methamphetamine, scales and packaging material were discovered during a warranted search of his home at about 6:05 a.m., they added.

The search was the result of an ongoing investigation by EPD Vice Unit officers that focused on methamphetamine sales in the West Ward area, police said.

Boyd is expected to be arraigned later today in front of District Magistrate Richard Yetter.
