Duo sold bongs at western Pa. county fair

DUNBAR, Pa. (AP) - August 5, 2011

Thirty-three-year-old Stephen Krug and 24-year-old Maria Zelik, both of Freedom, are charged with possession, conspiracy and possession with intent to deliver drug paraphernalia.

County task force Detective Ryan Reese says they rented a booth at the Fayette County Fair where they displayed a water bong, dozens of glass and wooden pipes, a digital scale and other drug-related products.

A sign said the products were for tobacco use only. But Reese says he asked the couple, "When did you ever see anybody smoke tobacco out of a water bong?" and why they needed a digital scale, which is commonly used to weigh marijuana but not tobacco.

Online court records don't list attorneys for the couple who were charged Tuesday.
