A Waynesboro mother and son are facing multiple felony charges following several drug deals in which the two allegedly sold pills to someone working with police.
Seth Robert Oberholzer, 27, and Brenda Kay Oberholzer, 57, are both charged with felony criminal use of a communication facility and felony manufacture, delivery or possession with intent to manufacture or deliver, according to court documents. Both were arraigned and taken to the Franklin County Jail unable to post $150,000 bail.
Detectives with the Waynesboro Police Department met with a confidential informant on Feb. 18, who informed them they had exchanged messages with Seth Oberholzer about buying drugs. According to police, he told the informant he would have his mom and brother meet them, and provided a number belonging to Brenda Oberholzer to set up the transaction. The informant then received a message from this number, stating this is “mamma you are talking to now, I’m here waiting for you,” documents state.
Police gave the informant money from department funds and followed them to a pre-determined location. Police watched as the informant walked up to the driver’s side window of a dark blue car with Pennsylvania registration, then returned to their vehicle and left, court documents state.
Authorities were able to identify Brenda Oberholzer as the driver from previous police incidents, but could not identify the male passenger. Police and the informant later met up in another location, during which time they turned over two pills they said they purchased from Brenda Oberholzer.
A month following this sale, Seth Oberholzer messaged an informant about buying the prescription drug, clonazapam, and told them to come to his home on West Fifth Street in the borough.
The informant was, once again, given money from the department and followed to the house where authorities saw them go inside and leave a short time later, documents state. Authorities then met up with the informant in another area, where they turned over an unknown amount of clonazapam to officers.
That same day, a search warrant was executed at the home with Brenda Oberholzer, Seth Oberholzer and two other women present at the time. Police said they found several bottles of the drug in Seth Oberholzer’s bedroom, with some packaged in the same way as the ones purchased earlier by the informant.
A preliminary hearing for the pair is scheduled for 1 p.m. on March 26 in Franklin County Central Court.
