04 August 2022- A Berkeley Springs man is behind bars in Franklin County after a traffic stop yields illegal prescription pills, marijuana, and drug distribution scales. Cody Allen Farner is charged with misdemeanor marijuana possession and felony drug possession with intent to distribute. Farner failed to post a bail of $100,000.

At around 8am on May 18th, Waynesboro PD pulled a Dodge Caravan over for failure to use a turn signal. After running the plates of the vehicle, it was determined that the driver of the car was not owner but he did have warrants for his arrest. The passenger of the car, Cody Allen Farner, did not have a valid license so the car was towed into police custody.

A search warrant was issued for the car after a small amount of marijuana was found in the glove box. Further investigation yielded Buprenorphine, Clonazepam, marijuana, and more buprenorphine pills. Additionally, digital scales and multiple Ziplock baggies were found in the car, consistent with attempts at selling drugs.

After making contact with the registered owner of the vehicle, it was determined that a number of pills were not in the bottle that the owner had had the men pick up for him, indicating they were either stolen or selling them. After interviews with the owner, both the driver and Cody Farner failed to comply with requests to talk to PSP. Farner is now in Franklin County Corrections on $100,000 bail.


An apparent shooting victim in Chambersburg is charged with drug possession after he showed up to the hospital injured with almost 70 grams of crack cocaine on him. Jabarre Isiah Hines is charged with possession on drugs with intent to distribute and is currently held on $100,000 bail in Franklin County Jail.

Chambersburg PD were called to Chambersburg Hospital on August 2 for reports of a shooting victim who had a large amount of a controlled substance on his person. After talking to hospital security and nurses, it became clear that the shooting victim was dropped off at the emergency room by an unknown male. Identifying himself as Ja’Von Hines, he was placed in a trauma room in the hospital and put in a hospital gown.

Hines, who would later be identified actually as Jabarre Hines, had a gunshot wound to his left knee that seemed to have passed through and entered the inside of his right calf. Inspection of Hines’ clothes found two large clear plastic baggies of suspected narcotics as well as $600 in US currency. Hines was allegedly uncooperative to investigators.

Inside one of the two ziplock bags were 77 small pink baggies with suspected crack cocaine. Inside the second was 17 plastic capsules with a white powder as well as 57 pieces of individually wrapped crack cocaine. In total, both bags ended up weighing in at 68.9 grams.

Hines is now in police custody at Franklin County Jail on $100,000 bail. His preliminary hearing is set for August 16.
