Authorities claim a Pennsylvania woman sold heroin from her bed in a hospital's intensive care unit.
The New York Daily News reports that Lori Sullenberger still managed to supply close to a dozen customers despite being bed ridden at Greensburg, Pa.'s Excela Westmoreland County Hospital. Sullenberger, 38, was arrested on Tuesday after security guards alerted police of her frequent visitors, all who made very brief stops in her room.
Furthermore, Greensburg Police Capt. Chad Zucco said several trap phones that reportedly rang "at all hours" were found in Sullenberger's room. Police sent an informant in, and they were able to purchase 30 bags of heroin worth $90 from Sullenberger. After searching her room, they found 380 bags of heroin worth an estimated $3,800 on the street. A total of $1,420 in cash was seized, as well.
Sullenberger was charged with possession of a controlled substance and possession of drug paraphernalia. Her boyfriend, 32-year-old Jason Bates, and 27-year-old Robert Rearick were also arrested and charged with possession of a controlled substance.
