The Villanova 19-year-old who authorities say helped run a drug ring looking for customers at elite Main Line schools appeared briefly in Ardmore District Court on Thursday morning to waive his preliminary hearing.
District Judge Kathleen Valentine held over drug and other charges against Timothy Brooks, 19, for trial in Montgomery County Court. The judge told Brooks his formal arraignment in Norristown would be Aug. 27.
This was the last hearing in District Court for any of the drug-ring defendants. Eleven people, including two juveniles, were arrested in April by county authorities, who said the ring's leaders had referred to the burgeoning operation as the "Main Line Takeover Project."
