Bensalem Police allege that Slipak drove his GMC to the Neshaminy Motor Inn, 2345 Old Lincoln Highway in Bensalem on Oct. 16 to meet Anthony Prisco for the purpose of selling pills to Prisco. 

Prisco, 21, of the 2900 block of Columbia Drive in Bensalem, was arrested and charged with felony counts of manufacture, delivery, or possession with intent to deliver; criminal use of a communication facility; and conspiracy. He was also charged with related misdemeanor offenses.

Letenauchyn was arrested and charged with four misdemeanor drug and conspiracy offenses. Police allege that Letenauchyn was seen handing Prisco the money to purchase the drugs. 

According to police, Slipak had agreed to sell Prisco three 30 mg oxycodone pills for $75. Slipak allegedly had 48 pills in his possession and told police he sold 40 from a 120-pill prescription that he had recently filled, according to court documents.
