A Petersburg man is being charged with three felonies related to selling methamphetamine. Police arrested 53-year-old Randy Long last week at his home at 503 Ira II Street #B. Inside a nearby trailer owned by Long, officers found 142 grams of a crystal-like substance, which later tested positive for meth. It has a street value of $28,000. Officers also found packaging material, scales, meth smoking pipes, and nearly $5,000 in cash.
Long is being charged with two counts of Misconduct Involving a Controlled Substance in the second degree and one count of Misconduct Involving a Controlled Substance in the third degree.
His bail was set at $100,000 plus a court approved third party custodian.
Long was originally arrested April 26 on outstanding warrants in Arizona. Those include charges for credit card theft or fraud as well as drug related charges.
Also in the house at the time of the arrest was Chellsey Musewski, age 25, of Petersburg. She was arrested for violating probation or parole. According to court documents, Musewski told officers that she had purchased heroin and meth from Long and had smoked meth with him as well.
Long’s Felony First Hearing on the local charges and status on the fugitive case is scheduled for May 3 at 3:30 p.m. at the Petersburg Court House.
