DANVILLE — A Jerseytown woman allegedly arranged to deliver 50 packs or a brick of heroin to a confidential informant Aug. 29. Police said the heroin was found in her underwear.
Mahoning Township police charged Amber M. Denoon, 28, of 57 White Hall Road, with two counts of delivering or possessing with intent to deliver a controlled substance, criminal use of a community facility and not being registered or licensed to possess a controlled substance.
Montour County District Judge Marvin Shawder arraigned Denoon and committed her to jail in lieu of $10,000 straight bail.
According to the charges filed by Cpl. Chad Thomas, the informant made arrangements for the buy to be made at a Valley Township inn. Before leaving, police provided the informant with $400.
Before the informant left his home, he got a call from Denoon telling him there was a change in the location for the delivery. The new location was going to be on Kitchen Road, off Route 642 in West Hemlock Township.
The informant picked up Denoon with a drug task force surveillance team conducting surveillance. By the time officers had left the inn and arrived at Kitchen Road, the sale had already taken police.
The purchase was a “window-to-window deal,” according to Thomas. Denoon bought the heroin from an unidentified white woman with blonde hair, police said.
During a pat search, Denoon told a female police officer she had heroin in her underwear, police said. Police found one brick or 50 packs of heroin in Denoon’s underwear.
They also recovered $60 later determined to be some of the pre-recorded buy money given the informant.
When police asked Denoon who the woman was in the silver Taurus she bought the heroin from, she said she only knew her first name and that she was from the Hazleton area.
Police notified Scott Township police, in Columbia County, who had a felony warrant for Denoon’s arrest for a similar offense the night before the Montour County incident which covered Mahoning Township, Danville and Valley Township. Police said she will be charged for the Scott Township incident.
