Charges result from Loretto drug investigation
A recent multi-department investigation into drug activity in the Loretto area resulted in the arrest of one local resident.
The Lawrence County Sheriff’s Department reported Thursday that the March 20, 2017 operation resulted in the arrest of fifty-two year old Barbara Elizabeth Patrick of 1106 Lexington Highway in Loretto.
Authorities were alerted to a suspicious package that had been received at the Loretto Post Office. When the package was examined they found that it contained around two ounces of a black tar substance believed to be heroin. Postal officials reported that the person to whom the package was addressed, Patrick, had called several times to check on the status of the delivery.
In a press release agents report, “Authorities were able to arrange a controlled pickup of the package with Barbara Patrick who did show up a short while later to obtain the package.” She allegedly confessed to them that she had mailed the package to herself from Arizona.
As a result of the operation Patrick was taken into custody. She was transported to the Lawrence County Detention Center where she was booked on a charge of possession of a Schedule I controlled substance (heroin) for the purpose of resale.
