SHAMOKIN, PA – A Lehigh County woman traveled to Shamokin, authorities say, to deliver drugs – and also to rip off the person to whom she was selling.
But the plot was foiled because the buyer was a confidential police informant.
Jessica Acosta-Ferrin, 28, of 3728 Knight Drive, Macungie, was arraigned Friday evening by on-call Magisterial District Judge Benjamin Apfelbaum, Sunbury, on charges of possession with intent to deliver a controlled substance, criminal use of a communication facility and possession of a controlled substance.
She was placed in Northumberland County Prison on $150,000 bail, according to Shamokin City Police Cpl. Bryan Primerano.
