Northeast Times: Tip Bottles Pill Pusher

From the Northeast Times:

Philadelphia Police Department narcotics officers arrested a Far Northeast woman after allegedly finding dozens of illegal prescription pills during a search of her home last Thursday.

Complaints from other residents of the 3500 block of Gloucester Lane, a loop street in the Morrell Park section, sparked the investigation, said Officer Jim Cullen of the Narcotics Field Unit-2.

Neighbors said that the woman, identified as Maria Slevenski, 40, received many visitors and was selling pills illegally. An informant confirmed the suspicions, Cullen said.

At about 7:15 p.m., police served a warrant on the woman’s home and allegedly found 32 Oxycontin pain reliever pills, 53 Ambien sleep-aid pills and 10 Marinol appetite stimulant pills, along with a .38-caliber revolver that was not registered to the woman.

Slevenski also had two grams of cocaine on her person, Cullen said. She has been charged with drug possession and possession with intent to deliver.

Cullen, Sgt. Joe Bologna and Cpl. Mark Palmer conducted the investigation.
