On August 7, 2019, Officer Edgar from the Bloomsburg Police Department completed a drug investigation and served a search warrant at 909 East 8th Street in Bloomsburg where Ronald E. Broadt aka “Moxie” was taken into custody.

During the search, police say officers recovered approximately 2.5 ounces (73.93 ml) of Crystal Cethamphetamine, Cocaine, Heroin, various prescription pills, Marijuana, packaging materials, over $3600.00 of US currency and a stolen handgun.

Broadt was arraigned by District Judge Richard Knecht and housed at the Columbia County Prison on $75,000 bail.

Currently, out on bail on charges relating to an uncompleted case of Driving Under the Influence Third Offense dating back to September 2018, Broadt appears to have been wanted by authorities in that case having failed to appear for a court date in December 2018.
