A suspect facing drug and weapons charges waived her preliminary hearing Wednesday in District Judge James Owens's court and remains in the Armstrong County Jail in lieu of $10,000 bond.

Lisa Marie Troutman, 22, of Kittanning, was charged after a Feb. 8 traffic stop led to impoundment of her car and a subsequent search in which police said they found 62 stamp bags of heroin, 38 narcotic pills, brass knuckles and a handgun with its serial number altered inside a hidden compartment under the car's hood.

Troutman is charged with felony counts of possession of a controlled substance with intent to manufacture or deliver, possession of a firearm without a license and with an altered serial number. Misdemeanor charges include possession of a controlled substance, drug paraphernalia and an offensive weapon.

Two men with her when the car was stopped are expected to face similar charges. The men, Shaunn Louis White, 23, and Quinton Dashawn Avery, 19, both of Pittsburgh, were released on Feb. 8 before police were able to get a warrant to search the car. Warrants for their arrest were issued after the drugs and weapons were found in the car, but the men have not been apprehended, Kittanning police Chief Bruce Mathews said.
