A Kittanning woman accused of selling heroin to police informants was arrested in her home on Wednesday by the Armstrong County Narcotics Enforcement Team.

Tiffany L. Fox, 20, of Chestnut Street is being held in the Armstrong County Jail on several felony and misdemeanor drug charges. Bail was set by District Judge James Owen at $100,000.

“We work with several informants who tell us who they know selling drugs around town,” enforcement team member and Kittanning policeman Greg Koprivnak said. “Our informant said she was selling outside of the store where she works, but we made both of our buys in downtown Kittanning.”

The first purchase was made near Kittanning Junior High School at 2:50 p.m. on Jan. 20. Fox allegedly sold the informant 10 stamp bags of heroin labeled “Magic City.” The second purchase of 10 stamp bags labeled “Scorpion” was made in the Patterson Way alley near North McKean Street, Koprivnak said.

She faces two felony counts each for delivery of a controlled substance, possession of a controlled substance with intent to manufacture or deliver, and using a cellphone during the drug transactions. She faces two misdemeanor charges of delivery of drug paraphernalia.

A preliminary hearing is scheduled on March 5 in Judge Owen's court.
