Brookville, PA – A woman is being charged with bringing illegal narcotics into the Jefferson County Jail in early June.

22-year-old Chante McCreary of Indiana, PA, is facing felony charges of prohibited contraband brought into a correctional institution, plus misdemeanor charges of intentional possession of a controlled substance and possession of drug paraphernalia.

It started when State Police in DuBois took McCreary to the Jefferson County Jail after arresting her on an outstanding warrant from Indiana County.

When troopers asked her if she had any drugs on her, she said that she didn’t. However, officials found an uncapped needle, pills and a small bag of brown powder when she was searched.

McCreary remains in the Jefferson County Jail on $25,000 cash bail. Her preliminary hearing is set for July 11.
