Another suspect in Leechburg meth investigation headed to court

November 24, 2018

Drug charges against a Leechburg man arrested as part of a drug investigation have been held for court.

William Mazeres, 34, of Main Street, is charged with conspiracy, drug possession and intent to deliver crystal methamphetamine. The charges against Mazeres were held at a preliminary hearing Wednesday.

He is one of four people charged in a continuing investigation in Leechburg by the FBI, U.S. Postal Service, U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration, state Attorney General’s Office, local police and the Westmoreland County Drug Task Force.

Danielle M. McWherter, 29, also of Main Street in Leechburg, was arrested at the same time as Mazeres. She will have a preliminary hearing Dec. 5. She is charged with drug possession and possession of drug paraphernalia.

The first two people to be arrested as part of the investigation were Reese Joseph Scott, 27, and Mark Anthony Faiola, 30, who were charged with having and selling crystal meth after a raid at the Sheperd’s Den dog grooming salon at 225 Market St. in Leechburg.

Police previously said Scott and Faiola are accused of having about about 224 grams -- about 8 ounces -- of the drug.

Scott is charged with three felonies: drug delivery, possession with intent to deliver drugs and criminal use of a communication facility.

Faiola is charged with felony possession with intent to deliver drugs, and misdemeanor counts of drug possession and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Scott and Faiola each waived charges to court. Their formal arraignment in Westmoreland County Court is scheduled for Nov. 7.
