York man sentenced to probation in meth case

YORK – Thomas M. Elliott, 47, of York has been sentenced in a case involving the possession of methamphetamine, marijuana and paraphernalia.

The case began when a search warrant was served at a York apartment by the York Police Department.

The arrest affidavit indicates officers found small plastic bottles containing methamphetamine residue, drug pipes containing methamphetamine, a sandwich bag containing marijuana, multiple marijuana pipes, a digital scale and other items of paraphernalia.

The officers also found a switchblade-style knife with a wavy blade near the foot of Elliott’s bed. Because Elliott is a convicted felon, he is prohibited from having that type of a knife. However, no charges were filed against Elliott regarding his possession of the knife.

Officers then arrested Elliott at his place of employment.

A plea agreement was reached and Elliott pleaded no contest to attempt of a Class 4 felony, which is a Class 1 misdemeanor. He was facing a possible maximum sentence of one year in jail instead of two years in prison.

This week, in York County District Court, he was sentenced to two years of traditional supervised probation.
