Two northeastern Lancaster County women will be arraigned this week on felony charges after detectives uncovered separate heroin and methamphetamine-dealing operations.
The Lancaster County Drug Task Force charged Amanda Rae Pajski, 33, of Stevens, and Morgan Mollenkopf, 22, of Ephrata, earlier this month.
Pajski is charged with selling quantities of heroin and methamphetamine in June and July in East Cocalico and West Cocalico townships while under surveillance of the Drug Task Force.
Detectives searched her South King Street apartment on Aug. 14 and found 28 grams of crystal methamphetamine, with an estimated street value of $2,800.
Pajski, at Lancaster County Prison on an unrelated bench warrant, will be arraigned Thursday on eight felony charges.
Mollenkopf will be arraigned Tuesday on two felony counts of delivery of methamphetamine regarding sales she made June 28 and July 6 while under Drug Task Force surveillance.
Mollenkopf is at Chester County Prison for drug charges in that county.
Pajski and Mollenkopf are presumed innocent.
