A Sullivan man has been charged after he was caught with 14 grams of meth that he tried to sell through the internet.
Corey L. Pivarnik, 29, is charged in a felony complaint with delivery of a controlled substance. He is being held on a $25,000 cash-only bond.
According to a probable cause statement filed by the Multi-County Narcotics and Violent Crimes Enforcement Unit, Pivarnik attempted to sell methamphetamine to 20 people in the Sullivan area through Facebook messenger.
Pivarnik allegedly listed various selling prices for various quantities of meth to one person via the social networking site.
Authorities said Pivarnik arranged to meet the person at the Sullivan City Park located on Fisher Road to sell him meth.
Detectives with the MCNVCEU seized 14 grams of meth from Pivarnik at the park, authorities said.
According to online court records, Pivarnik was given five years’ supervised probation in September for felony drug-trafficking charges in a Crawford County Circuit Court case from October 2015.
In 2016, Pivarnik was charged in a felony complaint with first-degree tampering with a motor vehicle.
Authorities said Pivarnik knowingly and without the owner’s consent “destroyed an automobile by burning . . .”
A probable cause statement filed by Sullivan police alleges that Pivarnik set the victim’s car on fire, “which was burned to complete destruction.”
The statement notes that the victim, Jordan B. Goad, Sullivan, valued the vehicle at $1,500.
In 2011, Pivarnik was given a suspended imposition of sentence after pleading guilty to a felony drug possession charge in St. Louis County.
He was ordered to perform 80 hours of community service and placed on five years’ supervised probation in that case.
In 2013, Pivarnik’s probation was revoked and he was sentenced to one year in jail, according to online court records.
