A 31-year-old homeless man will serve the next two to four years in state prison after pleading guilty to drug charges stemming from an incident in Pottstown in September 2011.
Timothy Andrew Smith, who has no address, pleaded guilty on Monday to a charge of possession with intent to deliver cocaine, according to a report in the Pottstown Mercury. The charge initially came after police observed his vehicle traveling in excess of 110 miles-per-hour on Route 422, which lead to a brief chase before police were able to apprehend Smith and locate the crack cocaine he discarded during the pursuit.
Court records indicate that Smith was originally charged with attempting to elude an officer, possession with intent to manufacture or deliver a controlled substance, DUI, DUI - controlled substance, careless driving, driving at safe speed, disregarding traffic lanes and reckless driving. The Mercury's report, however, indicates that all non-drug related charges were dismissed as part of the plea agreement.
