Tyrone woman faces drug charges

A Tyrone woman is in jail on drug charges after an unexpected visit was made to her home by probation officers, police say.

Heather Kay Taylor, 31, 815 Tipton Road of Tyrone was arrested at her residence after probation officers conducted a home visit. While officers attempted contact, there was no answer but movement could be heard inside the home after they announced themselves several times. An officer opened the door and announced himself after the door appeared to be unlocked, according to police.

Taylor was located inside the home and allegedly admitted to having drugs and drug-related items inside. Officers found a digital scale with a weight and mini-plastic bags containing methamphetamine that Taylor and a friend purchased, police said.

Taylor was transported to the Blair County Prison on a detainer.
