Police arrest two accused of making heroin delivery

Altoona police arrested two Johnstown area residents, Patricia Bouch, 24, and Terry Bodenschatz, 28, who allegedly made a heroin delivery at a local eatery on Plank Road, a Pennsylvania Office of the Attorney General press release states.

A confidential informant indicated to police Sunday that heroin could be purchased from Bouch and that she was willing to bring the narcotics from Johnstown.

The informant contacted Bouch of 506 First St., rear, Conemaugh, and she agreed to bring a brick – 50 bags of heroin – to Altoona for $500, according to the release.

Bouch and Bodenschatz met the informant at a local eatery on Plank Road, made a delivery of 30 bags of heroin and indicated that the shortage was due to her travel to Altoona, the release stated. Upon completion of the delivery, both suspects were taken into custody without incident, the release stated.

The arrest was made possible through the continued support of Operation Our Town.

Bouch and Bodenschatz were both taken to Central Booking to be arraigned by the on-call magisterial district judge.

Both individuals will be charged with criminal conspiracy, criminal use of a communication facility, delivery of heroin and possession of heroin. Bodenschatz, of 300 Midway Drive, Johnstown, will also be charged with possession of a small amount of marijuana.

The Department of the Pennsylvania Attorney General and the Bureau of Narcotics Investigation was also involved with the arrests.
