A New Ringgold man was one of four defendants who received hearings in the Schuylkill County Court on bench warrants which were issued for their arrest.
Michael Vincent Gustis, 31, of 111 Bear Creek Drive, had his bench warrant dissolved by Judge James P. Goodman and bail reinstated.
A warrant had been issued for his failure to appear in court for a hearing. Gustis was cited by Trooper Robert Oakley on Nov. 23, 2011, when stopped on the Adamsdale Road in West Brunswick Township. He faces a charge of possession of a controlled substance and also of exceeding the speed limit by traveling 73 miles-per-hour in a 55 zone.
Todd Allen Generella, 41, Pottsville, had his warrant dissolved by Goodman and bail reinstated and a special condition of the bail bond is he must reside at 554 E. Arch St., Pottsville, and cannot change address without first notifying the court.
He was cited by Pottsville Patrolman Joseph R. Welsh, on June 3, 2011, and charged with possession of drug paraphernalia and public drunkenness. He is awaiting trial on the charges.
Raymond McManus, 52, Ashland, had his bench warrant dissolved and he was remanded to the county prison without bail to await a hearing by a sentencing judge.
A warrant for his arrest was issued when he failed to appear before a magisterial district judge for a preliminary hearing on charge of being a habitual offender of the state's motor vehicle code. He was cited by Minersville Patrolman Jeffrey Bowers, for driving while his license was suspended.
Brian S. Craig, 48, Shenandoah, had his bench warrant dissolved by Goodman and bail reinstated and he must reside at 310 W. Penn St., and notify court of any advanced moving.
A warrant was issued for his arrest after he failed to appear for a pre-trial conference. He faces a charge of theft leased property filed by Trooper Timothy Rymakiewicz for failure to return a leased item from Lok-Weld Company, SR61, East Norwegian Township.
