A Selinsgrove woman was charged with possession after her probation officer allegedly found several drugs, including meth, in her kitchen on September 20th.
Wendy J Roden, 49, was allegedly found with the drugs after a home visit by a probation officer revealed a fishy urine reading. After the reading, the officer decided to take a look around and spotted a hypodermic needle, according to the criminal complaint.
“During the visit the probation officers had Roden take a urine test. The urine did not have a temperature reading and a probation officer began to look throughout the kitchen. During his search, the probation officer observed, in plain view, a hypodermic needle. The probation officer searched a purse close to the needle and found a white bag with no make on it containing 17 round white pills and 2 pieces of green wax paper containing suspected heroin,” read the criminal complaint.
The drugs were tested and turned out to be fentanyl and methylphenidate, according to police.
In addition to possession, Roden was hit with several other drug related charges.
A hearding will be held on 12/11 at 11:15 am at 1025 US RT 522 in Selinsgrove.
