Wayne County District Attorney A.G. Howell today announced that a 41-year-old man has been captured and charged with selling close to an ounce of crystal methamphetamine to a confidential informant in the Beach Lake, PA area in October 2018 after being on the run for a year.
Toby Kimbrough, originally from Alabama, was charged with one count of Delivery of a Controlled Substance, a felony, one count of Conspiracy to Deliver a Controlled Substance, a felony, and one count of Possession of a Controlled Substance, a misdemeanor. The charges stem from an investigation by the Wayne County Drug Task Force in the fall of 2018. Kimbrough and two other adults conspired to sell a confidential informant one ounce of crystal methamphetamine. Kimbrough fled to Alabama shortly thereafter. One of the two adults died before criminal proceedings could be brought against him. The other adult, Jeremiah Guthrie, has plead guilty to Conspiracy to Possess a Controlled Substance.
On January 16, 2020, deputies from the Wayne County Sheriff’s Department developed information that Kimbrough was now staying at a residence in Carbondale, Lackawanna County, PA. Deputies found Kimbrough at the residence and he was taken into custody. He was arraigned before Magisterial District Judge Ronald Edwards and remanded to the Wayne County Correctional Facility in lieu of $50,000 bail.
Kimbrough is scheduled for court on Wednesday, January 22nd at 9:00 a.m. in Central Court.
