Brookville Woman Charged After Drug Paraphernalia Found in Business Held for Court

JEFFERSON CO., Pa. (EYT) – A Brookville woman who was charged in connection with drug paraphernalia found in an Eldred Township business was held for court on Tuesday.

Court documents indicate the following charges against 26-year-old Lauren Brooke Uncapher were held for court on Tuesday, October 6:

– Criminal Trespass-Enter Structure, Felony 3
– Use/Possession Of Drug Paraphernalia, Misdemeanor
– Disorder Conduct Hazardous/Physical Offense, Summary

The charges have been transferred to the Jefferson County Court of Common Pleas.

Uncapher remains lodged in the Jefferson County Jail on $20,000.00 monetary bail.

The charges stem from the discovery of drug-related items found in an Eldred Township business in January.

Details of the case:

According to a criminal complaint, the manager of a business in Eldred Township, Jefferson County, contacted Marienville-based State Police on January 26 after he discovered numerous syringes and what he described as drug-related items, as well as a purse and other personal items, in a common work area.

Police arrived, surveyed, and photographed the scene, and seized the items.

According to the complaint, a single set of foot tracks were then discovered in the snow in an area around the loading dock. The tracks led away from the dock toward Greeley Road.

The complaint notes the tracks were “indicative of a person who was intoxicated or under the influence of a controlled substance,” because the path was “erratic” and went in circles. The tracks eventually led to Greely Road, then proceeded east.

According to the complaint, through the course of the investigation and subsequent interviews, Lauren Brooke Uncapher was established as a suspect.

Police then interviewed with Uncapher. She reportedly admitted to being a heroin user and said she had been drooped off at the business on the evening of January 26, after dark, according to the complaint.

She told police the abandoned items found at the scene belonged to her and admitted she was aware of the potential hazard created by the abandoned needles. She also admitted she did not have permission to be on the property, the complaint indicates.

Uncapher was arraigned in front of Magisterial District Judge Gregory M. Bazylak at 9:15 a.m. on August 13.
