            The search for an Upper Salford man facing multiple gun and drug charges led to the closure of area roads Monday afternoon.

            Local fire police units were called to assist law enforcement in closing down Sumneytown Pike (Route 63) between Geryville Pike in Marlborough Township and Old Skippack Road in Upper Salford, forcing motorists to seek alternate routes for more than two hours. Finding those alternate routes became more difficult as several surrounding roads were also closed to all traffic as police expanded their search for Troy Brendon Myers, 29, of Cedar Hill Road.

            Myers is accused of three felony counts of possession of a firearm with the manufacturer number altered, two felony counts of illegal drug possession with the intent to manufacture or deliver and one felony count for criminal use of a communications facility and one felony count of escape, according to court records. He also faces five misdemeanor charges of selling weapons, two misdemeanor charges of illegal possession of a controlled substance and one count each of possessing an instrument of crime and illegal possession of a firearm.

            The 20 counts filed against Myers stem from a July 20 incident in the township, according to information posted on a state judicial website. However, as of press time, no other information about that incident was available.

Charges were filed July 25 in the Red Hill court of District Judge Catherine Hummel Fried with a preliminary hearing scheduled for Aug. 25. The case remained under warrant as of Wednesday morning, according to a court employee.

            On Nov.16, 2016 Myers pleaded guilty to making an unsworn falsification to authorities – a misdemeanor charge – from a Feb. 5, 2015 incident in Hatfield Township related to the purchase, delivery or transfer of a firearm. He also pleaded guilty to a separate misdemeanor charge of possession of drug paraphernalia from a March 25, 2015 incident in Franconia. In both cases, he received a sentence of one year of probation.

            However, court records indicate that Myers was delinquent in paying some fines. The Montgomery County Sheriff's Department issued two bench warrants for Myers' arrest on April 17 that appear to be linked to those cases.
