 A drug dealer who brought a juvenile girl along while he was doing business with a police informant has been busted, officials said.

Allen K. Kocher sold the prescription pills Xanax and Adderall to a police informant three times over the last four months in the 500 block of Moorestown Drive, Moore Township, Northampton Co., officials said.

Kocher was accompanied by a 17-year-old girl when he delivered the pills, officials said.

Kocher sold two Xanax for $20 to the informant around 4:10 p.m. May 18; six Xanax for $35 around 4:30 p.m. June 24, and 10 Adderall for $60 around 4:50 p.m. Monday, officials said.

All of the drug buys were arranged using a cell phone, officials noted.

Kocher, 19, of 252 West Main St., Bath, Northampton Co., was arraigned on charges of delivery of a controlled substance, criminal use of a communication facility, and corruption of minors and committed to the Northampton County Prison on $10,000 bail, according to court documents.

A preliminary hearing is set for 9 a.m. Sept. 30.
