Woman Gets Jail for Role in Drug Sale
CLEARFIELD – A Pittsburgh woman was sentenced Monday in Clearfield County Court for her role in a DuBois drug sale.
Katelynn Virginia Henry, 24, 5461 Penn Ave., Pittsburgh, pleaded guilty to criminal conspiracy/delivery of a controlled substance-heroin and criminal conspiracy/delivery of a controlled substance-cocaine. She was sentenced to six months to one year in jail and two years consecutive probation. She was fined $400 plus costs. She was ordered to undergo drug/alcohol counseling. She is also not permitted to have narcotics without the permission of her probation officer.
The charges stem from an incident on Aug. 29 in DuBois. According to the affidavit of probable cause, an undercover officer and an informant met with Shane L. McCrommon at a residence on Mitchell Avenue in Big Run.
The officer, informant, Henry and McCrommon, who was carrying a black safe box, left the residence and traveled to a parking lot at the rear of a grocery store in DuBois. McCrommon handed the informant a total of 10 stamp bags of heroin, which he thought the officer was going to be selling to another individual. When the officer exited the vehicle and walked over to the “customer,” members of the Clearfield County Drug Task Force along with DuBois City Police officers took McCrommon, Henry and the informant into custody.
As he was searched, McCrommon was found to have a large amount of currency. A search warrant was served allowing officers to open the safe box, which contained 31 bundles of heroin, 10 loose stamp bags of heroin, two separate bags with crack cocaine and a handgun.
McCrommon, 37, Pittsburgh, also faces two counts of manufacture, delivery, or possession with intent to deliver a controlled substance, two counts of intentional possession of a controlled substance, criminal conspiracy, firearms not to be carried without a license, and possession of firearm prohibited.
During his interview with police, McCrommon told officers Kristen Marie Woods invited him to her home in Big Run, stating he could make a lot of money selling heroin and crack cocaine in the area. He claimed he didn’t know who the handgun belonged to and it was borrowed.
Woods is charged in relation to this case with criminal conspiracy/manufacture, delivery, or possession with intent to deliver a controlled substance, dealing in proceeds of an unlawful activity and criminal use of communication facility.
