Butler Pennsylvania

Local girl arrested for heroin possession

Emily Sopel, 34,  was charged with having  heroin and other drug contraband after a traffic stop on the 300 block of North Washington Street.

Police said Sopel was a passenger in the vehicle  of a U-Haul truck being driven by Heather Kuhrt, 33, of Butler, who was wanted on a bench warrant. Kuhrt was arrested on the warrant that was issued after she failed to appear for a hearing in a misdemeanor drug case.

When Sopel got out of the truck, a city police officer noticed that she had been sitting on a stamp bag of  heroin.

In the passenger side door pocket police said they found at least three more empty stamp bags.

Additionally, she is accused of having a hypodermic needle.

Sopel is charged with possession of a controlled substance and drug paraphernalia.
