Quakertown Drug Investigation Nets Two Arrests
Written by Bradley Schlegel, Staff Writer

            Two Quakertown men accused of selling drugs were arrested last week in the borough. Both were charged after local authorities served a search warrant on Feb. 15 at separate residences on Johnson Lane.

            Adam Walter Kobrzynski, 27, faces two felony counts of illegal possession with intent to manufacture or deliver as well as two misdemeanor counts of illegal possession along with one count each of possession of drug paraphernalia and one count of illegal possession of an offensive weapon.

            Luis Gabriel Carambot-Vazquez, 33, faces a felony count of illegal possession with intent to manufacture or deliver as well as misdemeanor counts of illegal possession of a controlled substance, possession of drug paraphernalia and four counts of receiving stolen property.

            The arrests capped a narcotics investigation that spanned the past few months. The search, assisted by the Richland Township Police Department, turned up methamphetamine and THC concentrate, known as "shatter", among other contraband, according to information provided by the Quakertown Borough Police Department.

            Authorities executed a search of Kobrzynski's home at 6:15 a.m. after Joshua Mallery, a sergeant with the Quakertown police department, viewed video of him performing hand-to-hand transactions consistent with drug activity. Mallery also observed numerous people coming and going to the home for short periods of time, consistent with drug activity. The sergeant also found items recognized as drug paraphernalia with suspected drug residues in the suspect's trash, according to the police criminal complaint filed in the Richland Township court of District Judge Lisa Gaier.

            Inside a black safe lockbox in Kobrzynski's bedroom, authorities found a quantity of the suspected meth, numerous new and unused plastic bag and a scale. On his desk they discovered an apparent owe sheet, commonly used by drug dealers to keep track of debts of buyers. A stun gun was also in the room, according to the affidavit of probable cause.

            Officers executed a search warrant at Carambot-Vazquez's residence at 6:19 a.m.  He was a target due to foot traffic in and out of the home for short periods. Local authorities also discovered drug paraphernalia with suspected drug residues in the suspect's trash, according to a separate affidavit.

            A search of the residence turned up a quantity of methamphetamine sitting on a downstairs coffee table along with clear unused baggies commonly used for packing the substance along with multiple digital scales. Authorities discovered three stolen Pennsylvania inspection and emission stickers, verified with the Buckingham Police Department through serial numbers, according to the legal document.

            Carambot-Vazquez allegedly admitted to using a text app and Facebook messenger. He reluctantly admitted to receiving the inspection stickers from Jacob Schwegel in a trade for assisting him in moving, according to court records. A charge against Schwegel for one count of receiving stolen property from a Nov. 12 incident was filed Jan. 30 by the Buckingham Township Police Department. The case remains inactive, according to information posted on a state judicial website.

            During a Feb. 15 arraignment, Judge John J. Kelly Jr. set bail in the case against Kobrzynski and Carambot-Vazquez at 10 percent of $75,000 monetary. The Bucks County Probation office issued a detainer for Kobrzynski. Both were remanded to Bucks County Prison. A preliminary hearing for both defendants has been scheduled for 2 p.m. on Feb. 28 before Gaier, according to information posted on the website.
