| February 13, 2018

SUGARCREEK, Pa. (EYT) – A Franklin woman is facing felony drug charges stemming from an alleged overdose that occurred last spring.

According to court documents, Sugarcreek Borough Police filed criminal charges against 38-year-old Felicia Ann Porter of Franklin, on February 8.

According to a criminal complaint, around 12:55 p.m. on April 25, 2017, Lieutenant Baker was dispatched for an overdose at a residence on Rocky Grove Avenue. He arrived at the residence where he was met at the door by a known man who told him that Felicia Ann Porter was upstairs on the floor.

Lieutenant Baker then went to the woman’s bedroom where he observed her lying on the floor. Between her legs, he noticed she had an electronic tablet with white powder, six used needles, and a silver-colored spoon with white residue, the complaint states.

As Porter “began to come around,” she was checked by EMS, and in plain view, there was a glass pipe with a burnt end lying on the floor by the bed and a large clear baggie of unknown white powder on top of the dresser. There was also a small blue box, which was open and contained 12 pills. Lieutenant Baker was able to see inside an open multi-colored cloth bag where there was an open box of syringes that contained 21 unused needles along with a silver-colored spoon with white powder residue and an electronic digital scale, according to the complaint.

As a result of the investigation, the following charges were filed against Porter at District Judge Patrick E. Lowrey’s office:

– Intentional Possession Controlled Substance By Person Not Registered, Felony
– Manufacture, Delivery, or Possession With Intent to Manufacture or Deliver, Felony
– Use/Possession Of Drug Paraphernalia, Misdemeanor

Porter is currently awaiting a preliminary hearing.
