Warren woman arrested on drug charges

A Warren woman was arrested for drug possession and subsequently charged for contraband.

Jessica M. Wolfgang, 39, of Warren, is charged with contraband, possession of a controlled substance, possession of a small amount of marijuana, possession of drug paraphernalia, and a traffic violation.

According to the affidavit of probable cause, police observed a vehicle on Route 666 in Sheffield Township repeatedly cross the white line on Monday.

Police stopped the vehicle, which was being driven by Wolfgang.

“An odor of marijuana was detected,” according to the affidavit. A check on Wolfgang showed that there was an arrest warrant for her out of Crawford County.

Police searched the vehicle and discovered “47 suspected Gabapentin pills… and a suspected THC vape cartridge.”

“While transporting Wolfgang to the Warren County jail, she was warned that if she had any (drugs or paraphernalia) hidden on her person and she takes it into the Warren County jail it is a felony charge,” according to the affidavit. “She was given the opportunity to tell me or give me items before our arrival.”

During a search at the jail, officers discovered one-and-a-half “suspected” Vicodin pills in her “bra area,” according to the affidavit. “Suspected marijuana… an orange straw, a silicon container with half a suspected Alprazolam pill, and a silicon container with three suspected (Vicodin) pills were also discovered in her underwear area.”

Wolfgang was arraigned before District Justice Ray Zydonik.

She was taken to Warren County jail after failing to post $20,000 bail.

A preliminary hearing is set for 2 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 13.
