Jefferson County, PA – A Reynoldsville woman pleaded guilty to her involvement with the massive “Return to Sender” Drug Trafficking case that rocked our area just a few years ago.

40-year-old Kristy Lepionka pleaded guilty to one count of conspiracy to distribute and possession with intent to distribute 500 grams or more, conspiracy to commit money laundering, and one count of possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.

She joins the 47 other defendants charged in the sting operation dating back to 2021 where drugs were funneled into both Clearfield and Jefferson counties from California.

Sentencing is scheduled for May.
