SHAMOKIN - A mother and daughter have been charged by city police with delivering a packet of heroin to an informant Tuesday night.
Cpl. Bryan Primerano filed felonies of delivering heroin, possession with intent to deliver heroin and criminal conspiracy against Tina Moyle, 40, of 425 N. Shamokin St., Apt. 4, and her daughter, Tyanna Menne, 23, of 9 Raspberry Hill, Shamokin, involving a heroin transaction at 9:30 p.m. at Moyle's apartment.
Moyle, who also was charged with a felony of criminal use of a communication facility, turned themselves into authorities at 2 p.m. Thursday at the office of Magisterial District Judge John Gembic III, where they were each arraigned and released on $5,000 unsecured bail. Gembic imposed supervised bail conditions on both defendants.
According to a criminal complaint, Menne is accused of selling a packet of heroin supplied by her mother to an informant for $60.
During a search of Moyle's apartment, police found an empty packet of heroin, four full packets of heroin and a few empty wrappers in Moyle's purse. Moyle also turned over three syringes and a smoking pipe to police.
Menne and Moyle admitted selling and providing the heroin, respectively, police said.
The mother and daughter are scheduled to appear for a preliminary hearing Tuesday before Gembic.
