Accused dealer waives hearing

CLEARFIELD — An Osceola Mills woman accused of selling drugs waived her right to a preliminary hearing last week during centralized court in Clearfield County.

Amber Dawn Pierson, 34, allegedly sold methamphetamine to a confidential informant Aug. 14 at a parking lot in Decatur Township, according to the affidavit of probable cause.

Police said Pierson got into the back seat of an undercover vehicle with an undercover officer and the informant with the intention of selling the drug. She allegedly gave a bag containing meth to the informant who then passed it to the officer who asked how much it cost.

Pierson reportedly replied that it was $100 for half a gram. She assured him it was “good stuff” and said they could purchase more from her, police said.

Pierson is charged with felony possession with intent to deliver a controlled substance and misdemeanor counts of intentional possession of a controlled substance and possession of drug paraphernalia.

At the time of her scheduled hearing, her bail was lowered to $75,000, unsecured, and she was released from the county jail.
