Man Faces Drug Charges After Traffic Stop


BRADY TOWNSHIP — Police in Lycoming County said they arrested a Philadelphia man on drugs charges following a traffic stop Wednesday morning.

Authorities claim Warren Harding was driving a 2013 Dodge Charger on Route 15 near Montgomery when he committed a traffic violation.

When police asked to search the vehicle, Harding refused.  Officers said a drug sniffing dog was called.  Based on the dog’s behavior, authorities then obtained a warrant.

Harding was charged and sent to Lycoming County jail.
