Published

on

Bristol Township Police have charged a borough woman with the felony drug distribution charges connected to a undercover buy and sell operation using a confidential informant this past January. 

Rachel Sayers, 38 of Bristol Borough was charged for possessing and distributing methamphetamine from her residence on the 200 block of Mulberry Street earlier this week, according to online court records 

According to court documents, Sayers sold 3.5 grams of the drug to a confidential informant on January 25, after the unnamed buyer called her through a cell phone number. 

Investigators quickly followed up days later by securing a search warrant for the Mulberry St residence from the Court of Common Pleas, on January 30.

During the warrant search, police found numerous zip lock bags generally used to store illicit substances, a digital scale that had meth residue on it, a bag containing 3.50 grams of the powerful stimulant, and smaller bag with a little more than than a half a gram that Sayers admitted was for personal use, court records show. 

Sayers told police she would purchase about a quarter ounce weekly, selling off one half and using the other half, referred to on the streets as an “eight-ball” for her own use. 

Sayers was processed and released and scheduled for a court appearance tentatively for June 24 in Bristol Borough District Court. 

She was also charged with misdemeanor possession of an illicit substance.

Cyber Tips Lead to Arrest of Bristol Man for Child Pornography Charges

Published

By

A Bristol man has been charged with felony related child pornography offenses after tips come in exposing his criminal lust and pornographic need for children as sex objects.

The Bucks County District Attorney’s Office initiated the investigation, in early April, of two CyberTips that were submitted to the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children (NCMEC).  MediaLab/Kik submitted both reports from a person with the screen/user name “cptsnacks” to NCMEC, said police.

The first CyberTip report included six different online incidences, four seeking child sexual abuse material (CSAM) and two separate chats, one with a purported 13-year-old and the other with a purported 15-year-old. The six incidences in this report happened in February of this year, ending with four incidences on February 14, authorities said.

The chats seeking CSAM ranged from questions on type of material to payment methods. Chats with the purported minors ranged from location and  preferences to their comfortability of certain acts. In conversation with purported 15-year-old, he questioned her comfort level with his age and marital status, according to the affidavit.

The second CyberTip reported that a Kik Messenger user saved, shared and/or uploaded apparent CSAM, said in the probable cause, on or about February 14 at approximately 2 a.m. The material consisted of two videos and two image files.

The device allegedly used by “cptsnacks” utilized the Android operating system.  Verizon was identified as the internet provider and their records showed the IP address as a Bristol Borough location. PennDOT records identified Joshua Lee Hill, 37. At the time of the alleged incidences, he was 36, married and resides near Philadelphia was consistent with the chat information given by “cptsnacks”, police said.

During a June search of his residence, multiple electronics were seized and an interview with Hill was conducted. In the interview, Hill stated that “cptsnacks” and the email address associated with it were used in the past. He did not acknowledge any activity alleged in the CyberTips prior to his invocation of counsel, said police.

Analysis of the electronics was not available at time of criminal filing. One electronic device held in excess of 50 CSAM images and also included a chat thread in which he allegedly provided the email address, he stated he no longer used,  to another party.

Hill  was arraigned by District Judge Terrence Hughes who set bail as unsecured. His next court date is scheduled for July 17 and will be represented by  Ethan William Paraboschi, Esq. of Philadelphia .
