CLEARFIELD – A Morrisdale woman has been accused of being in possession of methamphetamine while appearing for Clearfield County Court.
Amber R. Dorbolo, 33, has been charged by Sgt. Nathan Curry of the Clearfield Borough police with felony manufacture, delivery or possession with intent to manufacture or deliver and misdemeanor intentional possession of a controlled substance and use/possession of drug paraphernalia.
Dorbolo waived her right to a preliminary hearing Wednesday during centralized court at the Clearfield County Jail. Her bail is currently set at $100,000.
The charges stem from March 27 when Dorbolo appeared before President Judge Fredric Ammerman, who ordered for her to undergo a drug test, according to the affidavit of probable cause.
A probation officer escorted Dorbolo to the women’s restroom, and she suspected that Dorbolo was under the influence of something. At the restroom, Dorbolo said she couldn’t provide a urine sample because she was pregnant.
When asked by the PO if she’d test positive for drugs, Dorbolo allegedly admitted results would come back positive for methamphetamine because she’d used the drug about an hour earlier.
Dorbolo proceeded to remove a plastic baggie from her underwear that she allegedly said contained methamphetamine. She told the PO it was worth about $900 and she could get “pounds” of the drug.
Because Dorbolo was being remanded to the county jail, a sheriff’s deputy asked if she had any other contraband. She allegedly said she’d swallowed four balloons containing Carfentanil, a potent synthetic opioid, so she’d have it in case she ended up in jail.
Dorbolo was subsequently transported to the Clearfield Penn Highlands Hospital for medical treatment.
The crystal substance seized from Dorbolo at the courthouse was field-tested and showed positive for methamphetamine. It weighed about 24 grams, according to the affidavit.
Police have sent the suspected methamphetamine to the Pennsylvania State Police’s Erie Crime Laboratory for further analysis.
