Lili Szymecki, 36, of Butler and Richard Dortman, 56, who has no known address, unconscious on the sidewalk Wednesday on West Brady Street. A 911 caller had reported a man and woman being dragged from a home and placed on the sidewalk.
Police said they learned both were wanted on warrants. A search of Szymecki’s purse turned up 50 stamp bags of suspected heroin, one bag of suspected cocaine, four drug-smoking pipes and two spoons, documents said. Dortman was found with four stamp bags and 10 empty bags of suspected heroin, a small baggie of suspected marijuana, and a used syringe.
While the defendants were being booked at Butler County Prison, police said a correctional officer found an additional bag and an empty bag of suspected heroin in Szymecki’s sock. She was arraigned Wednesday on felony charges of possession of a controlled substance and smuggling contraband into prison.
