An Arona woman told a Trafford police officer that she had been “selling marijuana to make money for Christmas shopping,” according to court documents.

Heather Marie Wood, 23, was charged following a traffic stop on Brinton Avenue on Tuesday at 12:46 a.m., when officers seized 26 grams of marijuana, a set of brass knuckles, several stamp bags of heroin, cocaine and drug paraphernalia from her sport utility vehicle, according to police.

A K9 officer from North Huntingdon assisted in a search of Wood's vehicle, according to an affidavit of probable cause.

Wood is charged with possession with intent to deliver marijuana, possession with intent to deliver cocaine, possession of marijuana, prohibited offensive weapons, five counts of possession of drug paraphernalia and a summary vehicle code violation.
