Suspects caught up in drug manufacturing
By: Charles Schillinger and Erin Lemley  04/01/2004
Two suspects wanted in the killing of Bradford County Sheriff deputies have run into the law before. Both Dustin Briggs, 25, and Jacob W. White, 29, were reportedly involved with the sale of methamphetamine and the manufacturing of the controlled substance last July. The Brock family, which lives at the corner of Roaring Run Road and Congdon Road in South Creek Township, are neighbors of the Briggs and were shocked by the news that Dustin Briggs reportedly shot and killed two police officers. "I knew he had problems with the law - but killing officers? It's unbelievable," said Devon Brock. Tiffany Brock, who was a classmate of Dustin Briggs, described him as about 6 feet tall and about 26 years of age. Mr. Brock said Dustin Briggs had "always been in trouble." Dustin Briggs allegedly sold two ounces of methamphetamine to Jacob White last July at a junkyard owned by Arlan Briggs on Congdon Road in Wells Township, according to an affidavit filed by the sheriff's department. Police later revealed that a search was conducted at the junkyard with the permission of Arlan Briggs, and authorities found White was allegedly storing a tank used for the manufacturing of methamphetamine. Reports indicate deputies also found items commonly used to manufacture methamphetamine inside of car trunks. Residue from a crock pot in one of the trunks tested positive for methamphetamine, and a fingerprint on the crock pot was identified as being White's, according to the police report. Based on these findings, the Bradford County Sheriff's Office charged White with unlawful delivery of methamphetamine, possession of methamphetamine, and use or possession of drug paraphernalia on Jan. 8. White told police he had helped Dustin Briggs and Robert Jordan to clean up items associated with the manufacture of methamphetamine at the junkyard and had also purchased two ounces of the drug from Dustin Briggs, police said.  White pled not guilty to all charges at his arraignment before District Justice Jonathan Wilcox on Feb. 9, the docket sheet states. At a hearing before Judge Jeffrey A. Smith on March 1, White declined to enter a plea because he requested new counsel. He did not appear for a pre-trial conference at 8:30 a.m. on Feb. 16, according to the report, and his $15,000 bail was forfeited. A bench warrant was issued and reportedly delivered March 22 because of White's failure to appear at his pre-trial ©Daily and Sunday Review 2004
Two Bradford County sheriff's deputies shot dead
By Dan Amidon, C.J. Marshall and Charles Schillinger  04/01/2004
WELLS TWP. - An intense search was underway late Wednesday night for a suspect wanted for the killing of two Bradford County sheriff's deputies earlier in the day. Bradford County Sheriff Steve Evans identified the slain deputies as Michael VanKuren and Chris Burgert. He said they were killed while attempting to serve a warrant at a private residence on Congdon Road in Wells Township around 11:15 a.m. The shooting triggered a massive manhunt throughout Bradford County, as authorities searched for convicted felon Dustin Briggs. Briggs, 27, of Gillett was reported as one of three at the scene when the shooting occurred. Authorities said he fled. Authorities were also searching for Jacob W. White, 29, but they would not confirm or deny his presence at the scene, according to state police Trooper Tom Kelly, who is serving as liason at the command center at the South Creek Fire Hall. White was being sought in the hopes that he will provide information leading to Briggs, Kelly said. Evans said that VanKuren, 36, from Warren Center, was married with two teenage children, and had nearly 10 years with the sheriff's department. Burgert, 30, of Sayre, had been with the force for six years, Evans said, and is survived by a wife and young son. Both were wearing bullet-proof vests when they were killed, Evans reported. The sheriff also reported that authorities were searching for another suspect in relation to a felony methamphetamine warrant at the Congdon Road property. Evans would not release the name of the person. Kelly said that both deputies were shot and killed in the driveway of the residence, which is owned by Arlan Briggs, father of Dustin Briggs. After the shooting, someone in the house dialed 911, Kelly reported. Both Burgert and VanKuren were found dead in the driveway between 11:20 and 11:30 a.m., Kelly said.  Kelly also reported that Briggs has had previous violent confrontations with the police. "Briggs is not afraid of authority in any way, shape or form." Kelly said. Briggs has a criminal history in both New York State and Pennsylvania, Kelly said. Dustin Briggs allegedly sold two ounces of methamphetamine to White last July at Briggs Junkyard owned by Arlan Briggs in Gillett, according to an affidavit filed in District Justice Jonathan Wilcox office by the sheriff's department. White told deputies that he, Briggs, and Robert Jordan cleaned up items used to manufacture methamphetamine at the junkyard, according to the affidavit. As of late Wednesday, authorities were searching throughout the area for associates of Dustin Briggs, conducting house-to-house searches, Kelly said. Kelly reported that over 100 law enforcement officials - including officers from the FBI and the AFT - participated in the manhunt. Federal officers were called in because the incident occurred so close to the New York border. K-9 units were also pressed into serving earlier in the day, and are now on stand-by status. Authorities were searching the area for four vehicles, Kelly reported. The first was a red Chevrolet Cavalier, the second a gray full-sized Chevrolet Blazer, the third was a silver and blue S-10 Blazer, and the fourth a tan Ford Explorer. Kelly said that Dustin Briggs had access to all the vehicles, but it is uncertain if he was driving any of them.  A number of people were being interviewed in the case, including April Harris, who is Dustin Briggs' girlfriend, Kelly reported. Harris turned herself in voluntarily to the authorities and was being questioned at the command center on Wednesday.  Kelly also said a Tip Line has been set up at the command center. Anyone with information on the case may call (570)-596-2425. State police, the sheriff's department, and other local law enforcement officials set up roadblocks throughout the area in an attempt to take Briggs into custody Wednesday. New York State troopers and agents from the Chemung County Sheriff's Department also staffed roadblocks along the northern border, asking motorists to open their trucks, and in some cases checking the cargo areas of enclosed trucks. At the Pennsylvania-New York border in Ridgebury, state troopers dressed in camouflage and armed with assault rifles hunted the woods in the surrounding area. Kimberly Bilbrey, an employee at the Stateline Mart, 9 Main St., Wellsburg, N.Y., said police starting arriving around 6 p.m. At about 7 p.m., she said a mass of authorities began to move into the vicinity. Units ranged from Pennsylvania and New York state troopers to agents donned in Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearm jackets and a K-9 unit from Canton Borough. "I've been in this area my whole life - I've never seen anything like this," Bilbrey said. Police at the scene on the state line would not comment on the situation. A minor accident that occurred in Ridgebury was not related, one officer reported. Tiffany Brock, who was a classmate of Dustin Briggs, said she was shocked when Mark Briggs, a close relative to Dustin, approached her house and said his truck had broken down. "A friend had just called me and told me what happened," Tiffany Brock said about the two deputies who were shot. "And then Mark Briggs showed up at the house -- I was scared half to death." Tiffany Brock said authorities arrived soon afterwards. Police on scene at their residence and with weapons drawn, searched the Brock storage area which had been left open, but no one was found. The Brocks live approximately one mile south of the Briggs residence where it was reported the deputies were shot. "I know the roads and woods in this area pretty well," said Devon Brock, Tiffany's father. "But it doesn't compare to Dustin -- to all of the Briggs for that matter." Mr. Brock said Dustin and his family are avid hunters and knew the trails throughout the area from riding four-wheelers. "On a four-wheeler, you can get on a trail and head all the way to Troy," Mr. Brock said. The killings set off shock waves throughout Bradford County Wednesday as news of the two men's deaths reverberated throughout the community. Both VanKuren and Burgert worked in the past for the Towanda Police Department, according to Chief Frank Lindsey. Lindsey said he considered VanKuren and Burgert "my best friends." "They were excellent, excellent police officers, and they were excellent people," Lindsey said. The flags at the top of the courthouse were ordered lowered to half-mast by the Bradford County Commissioners in honor of the memory of the VanKuren and Burgert.  "All I can say it is just profound sadness and heavy hearts, and our thoughts go to the families, and the Bradford County Sheriff's office," said Bradford County Commissioner Chairman Nancy Schrader. "These people had daily dealings with the courthouse, and all the offices. It's just so hard to believe. Two people doing their job and always doing it well and somebody comes and does something like this. I have profound sympathy for the family. It's just a very, very sad day in Bradford County, that two fine gentlemen, who were doing their job and doing it well, could lose their lives because of the vicious acts of others." "I'm flat-out shocked," said Bradford County Commissioner Doug McLinko. "I knew Mike VanKuren well. He was a very close friend. He came out to the restaurant. Mike was an animal lover, like my wife. Chris Burgert was a great guy, too. I'm praying for their families. The whole sheriff's department is made up of excellent people. It's just terrible - it's absolutely heartbreaking." The mood at the courthouse was subdued Wednesday, with many people on the main floor crying. A number of officers from the county probation department were spotted in the front foyer, armed with handguns and carrying radios, watching people as they entered and left the courthouse. "The probation department, at the request of Judge (Jeffrey) Smith, offered its services in any capacity to provided needed security at the courthouse," explained Tom Schuster, director of the Bradford County Probation Department. Schuster also said that probation officers carrying sidearms were also wearing body armor for the duration of the event. Reporters James Loewenstein and Erin Lemley contributed to this story.
