GREENSBURG, Pa. (AP) - Police in western Pennsylvania say charges are planned against a woman believed to have sold heroin while she was a patient at a hospital intensive care unit and later from her hospital room.

Greensburg police told The Pittsburgh Tribune-Review (https://bit.ly/1eZy7mz ) that a confidential informant paid the Youngblood resident $90 for what was believed to be heroin Friday night.

Authorities said they seized more bags of suspected heroin, two syringes and $2,420 from the room at Excela Westmoreland Hospital in Greensburg.

Police said the woman, who wasn’t identified, went to the hospital April 14 for an unknown reason.

Excela spokesman Jennifer Miele said officials called police after noticing “an inordinate amount of foot traffic to one room.”



Police said charges of delivery and possession of a controlled substance are expected.
