DuBOIS — A search of a DuBois man spotted in the DuBois Public Library parking lot has resulted in a misdemeanor charge being filed by state police in DuBois.
According to an affidavit of probable cause filed Oct. 25 at District Judge Patrick Ford’s office in DuBois, state police were arriving on scene at 10:50 a.m. July 25 at 31 S. Brady St., DuBois, to attempt to serve a warrant from the vice unit on Vincent Michael Foringer, 20, 379 Montego Bay Road, DuBois.
