According to a criminal complaint, on Monday, December 23, Lieutenant Baker and Patrolman Johnson, of the Sugarcreek Borough Police Department, were contacted by an agent of Pennsylvania State Probation and Parole who stated he had three women in custody; drugs had been found in the residence. The agent requested assistance at the residence, which was located on Gilfillan Street.

The officers arrived at the scene and met with the agent, who stated he was there to speak to Alicia Summerville about passing a false urine test. He reported that while speaking to her, he searched her purse that was in plain voice, and inside found a glass smoking device, a plastic baggie containing a white powder residue, and a container of liquid that appeared to be urine. Summerville was then placed in custody.

The agent reported he then noticed a green translucent box on the bed that appeared to contain a plastic bag. When he opened the lid, he found a large amount of what appeared to be crystal methamphetamine.
