Woman accused of selling drugs to undercover trooper

An Oil City woman is facing numerous drug charges after she allegedly sold crack cocaine to an undercover state trooper in April.

A criminal complaint filed through district judge Andrew Fish’s office says the undercover state trooper, who is assigned to the Drug Law Enforcement Division Northwest Strike Force Unit, spoke with a confidential informant April 26 about a controlled purchase of crack cocaine.

The informant told the trooper that Megan Deloe, 20, was selling cocaine from her residence at 215 State St. in Oil City, the complaint said.

The trooper then traveled to the area of State Street and picked up Deloe, where she advised him that she needed to go get her house key from a residence on Riverside Drive, the complaint said.

After entering the residence for a short time through the front door, Deloe came back out and re-entered the undercover trooper’s vehicle before they returned to the home on State Street, the complaint said.

Upon their arrival, the complaint says Deloe entered the residence through a back door and the undercover trooper followed.

Deloe produced a plastic bag containing a chunky white substance that was believed to be cocaine and she began to break off pieces of the substance while placing the rest in a cigarette pack, the complaint said.

Deloe gave the pack to the undercover trooper and he handed Deloe $200 of official state police funds, the complaint said.

After returning to the police barracks, the substance was tested and the results came back positive for cocaine.

Deloe was arraigned Wednesday before Fish and placed in the Venango County jail on $25,000 bail.

She is charged with one count each of manufacture, delivery or possession with intent to manufacture or deliver, intentional possession of a controlled substance and use/possession of drug paraphernalia.

A preliminary hearing is tentatively scheduled for Wednesday in Venango County Central Court.
