SYRACUSE — Police say that they recently discovered drugs while conducting a home visit with a parolee.
Erin Elaine Siefert, 32, 708 S. Kinder Drive, Syracuse, is being charged with possession of a narcotic drug and possession of a syringe, both level 6 felonies.
On Nov. 27, an officer with the Syracuse Police Department responded to Siefert’s residence to assist an Indiana State Parole Officer with a home visit.
Upon arrival, the Parole Officer advised that he had located two syringes, four plastic bags of heroin and two electronic scales inside the residence. The officer also obtained text messages from Seifert’s cell phone that showed she was using, dealing and trading illegal drugs.
According to the affidavit of probable cause, Sierfert admitted to the officer that she had been using heroin.
Siefert had been booked into the Kosciusko County Jail but has since been released on her own recognizance. She is scheduled to appear in court tomorrow, Dec. 20, for her initial hearing.
