Comments Off on Lisa Gebhart, 40, of Northumberland, arrested for possession of Methamphetamine at boat launch

SUNBURY — A woman was arrested for possession of methamphetamine after city police discovered a truck parked in the boat launch off of Front Street, police said.

Lisa Gebhart, 40, of Witmer Drive, was arrested after Sunbury officer Keifer Bathgate said he was patrolling at the boat launch on March 23 when he saw a truck parked in the northern end of the parking lot.

Bathgate approached the truck and discovered five individuals inside. When he spoke to the driver, Bathgate said he smelled a strong odor of marijuana, according to the charges.

Sgt. Jim Taylor then arrived to the boat launch and asked Gebhart if she had anything in her purse. Gebhart replied, “not that I know of,” police said.

Bathgate then told Gebhart because her purse was in the vehicle he would search it. Gebhart allegedly then admitted she had “speed,” police said.

Bathgate searched Gebhart’s purse and discovered four glass pipes, a small plastic bag that contained white residue, a small bag of alleged methamphetamine and a cigarette pack containing more alleged methamphetamine, police said.

The drugs collected were field tested and police said the results were positive for meth.

Gebhart was charged with misdemeanor counts of possession and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Gebhart will appear before Sunbury District Judge Ben Apflebaum in the coming days.
