A Youngwood woman smuggled urine for a drug test inside a bottle of hand sanitizer in August, Westmoreland County detectives said.

Lori Lynn Sullenberger, 37, has been charged with furnishing drug-free urine.

On Aug. 22, Sullenberger was ordered by a judge to provide a urine sample for drug testing in a custody matter, detectives said.

During the test, a probation officer saw that Sullenberger had a small bottle hidden in her hand, according to a police affidavit. The officer asked for the bottle to be turned over to her, and Sullenberger refused, detectives said.

The officer said the bottle contained a yellow liquid that had an odor, authorities said.

Sullenberger then was questioned by a detective.

“During the interview, Ms. Sullenberger advised she had brought the hand sanitizer bottle, which contained what she believed (was) her own clean urine, to court today in case she was drug tested,” the affidavit said.

A notice about the charges will be sent to Sullenberger, who faces a preliminary Dec. 12 before Greensburg District Judge James Albert.
