Woman faces felony drug charges

A Coudersport woman who was the victim of an armed robbery last September now finds herself in trouble with the law.

Police allege that Crystal L. Taylor, 32, made two sales of morphine to an undercover informant and to Shinglehouse Borough Police Chief Brad Buchholz on Nov. 13 and Nov. 16, respectively. She faces felony counts of selling a controlled substance.

Less than two months earlier, Taylor called Coudersport Borough Police to report that a masked gunman had broken into her Seventh Street home and demanded she give him money and drugs.

Thomas L. Butler, 21, and Christopher J. Wilkinson, 22, were jailed about three weeks later on charges of felony armed robbery, simple assault, home invasion, criminal trespass and burglary. They are being held in the Potter County Jail.

Medicine stolen Someone stole prescription pills from a car parked in Ulysses late last month. Stephanie Sharp, 22, of Alfred, N.Y., told state police from Denton Hill that pills were lifted from her vehicle while it was parked in the lot of a grocery store on Main Street.

Marijuana growing operation raided

A Roulette resident faces multiple charges for allegedly raising some 67 marijuana plants in a home he shared with a child.

On Tuesday night, authorities raided the residence of Nathanael Schoen at Horseshoe Court and discovered the plants in a mobile home addition, along with a large quantity of drug paraphernalia.

Schoen is charged with manufacturing a controlled substance, endangering the welfare of a child and related counts. The investigation is continuing.

Identity theft A forgery dating back more than six years is under investigation by state police from Denton Hill. Sherry A. Kalasnik of Ulysses reported that she discovered a legal document on which someone had forged her signature in order to make a withdrawal from a retirement account back in August 2006.
