When officers arrived on scene, they found Christina Lowdermilk, 24, of Bobtown, Pennsylvania, and another individual inside the vehicle; officers also saw “multiple paraphernalia items inside of the vehicle,” officers said.

At that time, officers called a K9 unit to the scene, which gave a positive indication and a search was then performed on the vehicle, according to the complaint.

During the search, officers said they found a “large amount” of drug paraphernalia including needles, ‘shoot-up kits,’ smoking devices and foil; officers also found fentanyl, methamphetamine, heroin and cocaine.

Officers also found a ledger written by Lowdermilk which “contain[ed] information of narcotic sales,” as well as bags, a set of digital scales and $100 in cash, according to the complaint.

Lowdermilk has been charged with two counts of possession with intent to deliver a controlled substance. She is being held in North Central Regional Jail.
