A total of 23 controlled buys took place from these individuals, 13 of them on Chestnut Street, where Duncan resides, and seven around Market Street, police said.
Duncan faces eight felony charges related to manufacture, delivery or possession with intent to manufacture or deliver, two corrupt organization felony charges and a possession charge.
Duncan is being held in the Mifflin County Correctional facility in lieu of $500,000 bail and is awaiting a preliminary hearing before Magisterial District Judge Jack Miller on June 6.
