A Zelienople man pleaded guilty to selling marijuana to a police informant in Butler County Court on Wednesday.

William C. Bennett, 54, pleaded guilty to felony possession with intent to deliver a controlled substance before Judge William Shaffer.

Bennett was initially charged with four felony drug delivery counts, two felony counts of criminal use of a communications device and two misdemeanor counts of possession of a controlled substance after an incident on Feb. 24, 2016.

The Butler County Drug Task Force conducted an investigation into Bennett allegedly selling marijuana in the Zelienople area.

A confidential informant said Bennett offered to sell him an ounce of marijuana for $375, and a deal was set up that day, according to court documents.

The sale, with officers watching, was made outside the suspect's home on South Main Street.

A full report will appear in the Butler Eagle.
