Woman faces several drug charges for heroin

When there is an arrest for drug-related crimes in Pennsylvania, it is often categorized as involving people who are distributing, trafficking and selling drugs. These can be "street" drugs, like heroin, cocaine and methamphetamine, or it can be prescription drugs. Selling drugs can result in an arrest and serious consequences. What should be understood is that people who are arrested for drug possession when they are apparently using the drugs themselves can also face charges. There can also be a combination. This can impact them in many negative ways with fines, jail time and family problems.

According to a recent report, a 29-year-old woman was arrested for numerous charges related to heroin. The incident began after police were called to a store at approximately 9 p.m. when the woman said her son was missing. According to the store's video recordings, the son was not with her when she arrived at the store. Law enforcement went to her residence and found the child. He was allegedly surrounded by heroin packaged in various ways. The woman also allegedly had heroin in her vehicle. The child reportedly told police that it was his mother's medicine.

The woman told police that she manufactured the heroin at home with products she had purchased. She said she recently became unemployed and was selling the drugs to earn money. She was also using drugs. She faces charges of drug manufacturing, drug possession and intent to deliver. The child was brought to his grandparents.

Heroin is an increasingly worrisome problem in Pennsylvania, with a growing number of people becoming involved with it. When there is an arrest for heroin, it can lead to a long jail sentence, fines and long-term damage to the person's life. If they have children, it can place parents in a position in which they face the risk of losing custody. Arrestees should understand their options when it comes to drug charges.
