Sheriff's Office Arrests Woman for Selling Fentanyl Laced Heroin

Written By Editor on 12/22/17 | 12/22/17

A Delaware County Grand Jury handed down a Sealed Indictment Wednesday afternoon,
December 20, after considering evidence relating to a narcotics trafficking investigation
conducted by members of the Delaware County Sheriff's Office Criminal Investigation
Unit earlier this year.

On Wednesday afternoon Sheriff's Office Investigators and Deputies subsequently
arrested a Town of Tompkins resident on a Sealed Indictment Arrest Warrant issued by
the Delaware Count Court that day upon the filing of a Sealed Indictment by the Grand

Investigators arrested 30 year old Chellie A. Warner of Trout Creek, NY, on a warrant
charging her with three class B felony offenses of Criminal Sale of a Controlled
Substance in the Third Degree. Warner is accused of selling quantities of Fentanyl laced
Heroin from her Town of Tompkins residence during late August of this year.
Warner was arraigned in Delaware County Court before County Court Judge Richard D.
Northrup, Jr., on Wednesday afternoon and was remanded to the Delaware County
Correctional Facility without bail pending further court action.

Commenting on the arrest, Sheriff Craig DuMond advised “fentanyl laced heroin, which
is more frequently being encountered by our Deputies and Investigators, is a powerful
and dangerous synthetic opioid analgesic that is similar to morphine, but estimated to be
50 to 100 times more potent than heroin. Fentanyl‐related substances have been
identified in various forms including powder, pill, capsule and liquid forms as well as on
blotter type paper and stickers.

Fentanyl is not only extremely dangerous for the drug’s users, but also for law
enforcement, first responders, public health workers and the drug user’s family members
who may unknowingly come into contact with it in its different forms. Just touching
fentanyl, carfentanil, and or other related synthetic opioids or accidentally inhaling those
substances during law enforcement activity, such as seizing or field testing a fentanyl
laced substance, can result in potentially deadly consequences for officers and first
responders. Canines are particularly at risk of immediate death from inhaling fentanyl
during their search and enforcement work. For all of these reasons, we caution the public
regarding contact with these dangerous drugs. Rest assured, the members of the
Delaware County Sheriff’s Office are working tirelessly to hunt down and arrest the
individuals who have introduced these poisons to our communities”.
