Reynoldsville Woman Accused of Drug Possession, Stealing Prescription

CLARION CO., Pa. (EYT) – A 46-year-old woman is facing charges for drug possession and allegedly stealing a prescription in Rimersburg Borough, Clarion County.

Court documents indicate CNET (Clarion County Narcotics Enforcement Team) filed criminal charges against 46-year-old Julie Lynn King, of Reynoldsville.

According to a criminal complaint, around 11:42 a.m. on Wednesday, February 14, a CNET officer was contacted by Pennsylvania State Parole Agent Wetzel in reference to the possession of suboxone and drug paraphernalia by parolee Julie King.

Officer Wetzel advised the CNET officer that around 2:20 p.m. on February 12, she was assisted by the Clarion County Sheriff’s Department at a Rimersburg Borough residence, as she had a warrant for the arrest of King and had knowledge that King would be at the address.

Upon entering the residence, Officer Wetzel observed King coming out of a bedroom, and King was taken into custody. King told Officer Wetzel that she had used a known individual’s suboxone on February 11 without the individual’s knowledge. Officer Wetzel asked King if there were any drugs or paraphernalia in the residence, and King told her that there was a partial strip of suboxone in the medicine cabinet in the bathroom, which Officer Wetzel then located. King also allegedly admitted that she was using the suboxone, according to the complaint.

Officer Wetzel was contacted on February 14 by the known individual, and the individual told her that they had found several items of suspected drug paraphernalia in King’s belongings. Officer Wetzel advised the individual not to touch the items and that she would come to collect them.

Office Wetzel arrived at the residence around 9:45 a.m. on February 14 and seized a purse containing several hypodermic needles and empty suboxone strip packages. The packages matched the packages found on the day King was taken into custody that she had admitted to using. King’s identification and mail addressed to King were also found in the purse.

A prescription for Ondansetron 4mg tabs (a substitute for Zofran) prescribed to a known juvenile was found in a black backpack on the dresser. The backpack also contained King’s belongings. The known individual advised that the prescription was for her juvenile son and had come up missing. The known individual also said that King had taken her suboxone tablets on January 31, and she confronted King. King admitted to her that she had taken her suboxone without consent, the complaint states.

A written statement from the individual was obtained.

Officer Wetzel turned over the evidence including all of the suboxone and drug paraphernalia to the CNET officer on February 14.

Based on the investigation, the following charges were filed on Thursday, March 1, at Magisterial District Judge Jeffrey C. Miller’s office:

– Theft By Unlawful Taking-Movable Property, Misdemeanor 3
– Intentional Possession Controlled Substance By Person Not Registered, Misdemeanor
– Use/Possession Of Drug Paraphernalia, Misdemeanor

King is currently awaiting a preliminary hearing.
