Detectives and Officers of the Kingston Borough Police Department, working as members of the Luzerne County Drug Task Force, executed a search warrant at 378 Wright Avenue, Apt 1, in Kingston. Police say the search warrant stemmed from an ongoing drug investigation involving Sherrielee Conahan  and Lenelle Cobb, both of Kingston. Police say Conahan and Cobb were observed leaving their residence, and walking down Wright Avenue in Kingston, when they were taken into custody. 

According to police the search of the residence resulted in the seizure of heroin, fentanyl, a loaded .380 caliber handgun, drug paraphernalia and cash. Police say  Conahan and Cobb, who’d left the residence to deliver additional heroin / fentanyl to an unknown person, left two toddler aged children in the apartment alone, within easy reach of several bags of fentanyl and the loaded handgun.

Magisterial District Judge Dixon arraigned Conahan on charges of Manufacture, Delivery, or Possession with Intent to Manufacture or Deliver (six counts), Criminal Use of Communication Facility (three counts), Intent to Possess a Controlled Substance (three counts) and Use/Possession of Drug Paraphernalia (three counts). Conahanwas subsequently transported to the Luzerne County Correctional Facility, in lieu of $50,000 straight cash bail.
