Eleven days after the Orange Street News turned revealed evidence that there was a drug dealing, prostituting accomplice to the November car theft the Selinsgrove Police Department is still refusing to say whether there are investigating.
The exclusive OSN investigation revealed that a drug dealing Selinsgrove woman may have been involved in the Orange Street car-heist — then turned to prostitution to try to get the alleged thief out of jail. But despite nine visits to the Selinsgrove police station, four phone calls and emails to Police Chief Thomas Garlock the OSN has not received any information on what if anything is being done.
The OSN has proof that the woman, whose identity is being withheld by the OSN, was in the stolen car. Knowingly riding in a stolen vehicle is crime. But that appears to be the least of her crimes.
The woman, who was close to the thief Jeffery Yates — aka “Biker Boy Jeff”, was also a known drug user. Both were staying in Selinsgrove, according to sources.
Yates spent the night behind bars after he was nabbed by an alert Baltimore police officer who saw Yates getting out of the 2013 Honda Civic and walking into a store at around 8pm on November 28th. The officer decided to run the plates and they came back showing that the car was stolen. The officer waited as Yates continued shopping. When he stepped outside they nabbed him.
Yates, who also loves knitting and was pictured in a Dec 2011 article titled How Knitting Behind Bars Transformed Maryland Convicts, told police he stole the car from outside of the Selinsgrove home at 423 Orange Street on the evening of November 27th so that he could drive himself to Baltimore where he had another court case, according to sources.
On the phone it shows she posted at 1:21am the night the car was stolen tagging Jeffery Yates, saying she was with him when the car was stolen.
“Why don’t yall get stop writing me back with my baby father,” the woman posted tagging Yates.
The OSN has additional proof that woman rode with Yates to Maryland.
In addition to being an accomplice in a car heist the OSN also obtained exclusive text messages appearing to show the woman was dealing drugs
On April 24th the woman messaged a friend “U no anyone that looking for subs. Give them my facebook shit man. And i’ll give you a couple of buck for sending them my way,”
The man responded, “Rd I got u night need some 2morrow.”
In another exchange on the morning of November 28th, while with Yates, she messaged another friend “Ill have subs for you tomorrow if u no anyone that needs any. The 12’s and the 8’s.”
Subs are the street name for the drug Suboxone.
Messages also showed that she was practicing prostitution to pay for Yates bail for a previous offense.
On the morning of December 1st a friend sent her the message “Sex.” “$150.”
At 4:16 am the same morning the woman responded. “Yes I need some money.”
That same day another man named offered $15
“I need at least $100,” said the woman.
“LOL” he replied.
“I need to pay a bail that why i need $100,” the woman responded.
The OSN will be keep updating if any more information is found.
