York man caught with methamphetamine while on probation pleads not guilty

YORK – Thomas Elliott, who is currently on probation, was allegedly caught in possession of methamphetamine and he has pleaded not guilty to a Class 4 felony.

His arraignment was held this week in York County District Court.

According to the affidavit filed with the court, officers with the York Police Department participated in a probation search at Elliott’s residence as it was alleged he admitted to his probation officer “of recent drug use and state he had no plans of stopping.”

During that search, it is alleged officers found five plastic bags containing methamphetamine residue under a couch cushion, a straw containing methamphetamine under a cushion and a glass pipe containing methamphetamine in a backpack.

A jury trial has been scheduled for late April.

He is facing a possible maximum sentence of two years in prison with 12 months of post-release supervision if convicted.
