Salem Township man charged with selling meth


A 44-year-old Salem Township man has been charged with selling methamphetamine and Suboxone.

Dan Wesley Fair is charged with eight counts of criminal solicitation to manufacture, deliver or possess with intent to deliver a controlled substance and eight counts of manufacture, delivery or possess with intent to deliver a controlled substance; all as unclassified felonies; eight counts of criminal use of a communications facility, a third-degree felony; and nine counts of possession of a controlled substance as an unclassified misdemeanor.

According to court documents, Clarion County Detective Roger Wright was contacted by the Clarion County Adult Probation Office after officers there allegedly found messages on Fair's cellular telephone indicating he was involved in the distribution of methamphetamine.

Wright obtained a search warrant for the telephone and allegedly found numerous messages between Fair and other people indicating various transactions involving Fair meeting people at various locations or instructing them to come to Fair's home to buy methamphetamine and Suboxone.

The activity allegedly occurred between October 2019 and May of 2020.

Wright alleges he found a photograph of a rock of crystal methamphetamine on Fair's telephone. The properties of the photograph indicated it was taken at Fair's residence.

Wright interviewed Fair at the county jail where Fair was being held on other charges.

Fair allegedly admitted all of the conversations on the telephone were about him selling methamphetamine and Suboxone.

Fair allegedly told Wright he sold the controlled substances to "make a little bit of money" and that he was trying to quit selling the substances.

Fair allegedly told Wright he sells the drugs out of a shed at his residence.
