Undercover Phoenixville Police bust up 2 cocaine dealers

PHOENIXVILLE — Two alleged cocaine dealers were arrested after undercover operations conducated by the Phoenixville Police.

William George Geffken Jr., 47, and Amber Rae Carey, 23, both of Phoenixville, were both charged with multiple felony counts of manufacturing, delivering and/or possessing drugs as well as criminal use of a communication facility, among multiple misdemeanor charges.

The Phoenixville Police conducted an undercover operation throughout the late winter into the spring in which undercover officers bought cocaine multiple times from both, court documents indicate.

Undercover officers bought cocaine three times from Carey on the 200 block of Prospect Street, according to an affidavit of probable cause tied to her case. Geffken allegedly sold cocaine to officers four times in two different spots, police said: the 200 block of Bridge Street and the 300 block of Church Street.


All deals were arranged through the use of a “communication facility,” which likely means a phone.

The drugs officers allegedly bought from Geffken and Carey were taken to the state police crime lab in Lima, Pa., where they tested positive for cocaine, “a Schedule II controlled substance,” according to court documents.

It’s unclear when exactly either was arrested, but charges were filed for Geffken July 10 and against Carey July 15.

Carey was arraigned already and posted 10 percent of her $10,000 bail July 15, the day she was arraigned.

Geffken’s bail was set at $25,000 unsecured, for which he posted a surety bond July 16, the same day it was set.

Both are scheduled to have a preliminary hearing next week.
