Bust in Honesdale nets street drugs worth $40,000

HONESDALE – Two Honesdale residents are in jail on multiple drug and other charges. David Jacques, 22, and Shannon Duffy, 32, were arrested last Thursday.

Honesdale Borough Police were called to a domestic disturbance outside a residence at 319 Eleventh Street. When police arrived, they attempted to contact Duffy, who was involved in the domestic dispute.  The officers say the inside of her home was filled with a Marijuana smoke haze, and her seven-year-old child was present inside the home. 

Duffy agreed to a search of her home and the following items were seized: nearly $2,500 in cash, approximately 7,000 doses of LSD, about one pound of marijuana, two bags of mushroom, approximately 45 grams of Molly, 41 edible marijuana candy bars, and numerous items of drug paraphernalia.

Jacques faces four felony counts of possession with intent to delivery, and a misdemeanor count of possession of drug paraphernalia. Duffy is charged with one felony count of conspiracy-possession with intent to delivery, and misdemeanor counts of possession of drug paraphernalia and endangering the welfare of a child.

"The excellent police work of Sergeant Keith Colombo and Patrolman Chad Hankinson resulted in the seizure of a significant amount of illegal drugs and drug money,” said Wayne County District Attorney Patrick Robinson. “While the drugs seized did not include heroin or opioid based pills, the large amount of LSD and Molly are extremely dangerous drugs. The street value of the drugs seized easily exceeds $40,000. Law Enforcement in Wayne County will continue to be vigilant and proactive in an effort to catch and punish drug dealers to the fullest extent of the law.”
