Hellertown woman arrested by police serving a search warrant at her home repeatedly tried to assault a police officer, according to court records.

Theresa A. Bowen, 48, was found awake and in bed with a bag of suspected crystal methamphetamine when police searched her home April 6 in the 400 block of Main Street, police said.

She was arraigned Monday night on felony and related counts and sent to Northampton County Prison in lieu of $150,000 bail. Court records do not detail why she was arraigned four months after the alleged incident.

Police serving a search warrant say they also found in the home glass pipes commonly used to smoke meth, packaging materials, plastic containers used to store the illegal stimulant and 8 grams of suspected meth, records say.

While handcuffed in police custody, Bowen kicked a stool at a Wilson Borough detective assisting in the search then attempted several times to head-butt and kick him, records say.

She was arraigned before District Judge Jacqueline Taschner on a felony county of drug possession with intent to deliver in addition to misdemeanor drug possession, resisting arrest, possession of drug paraphernalia (three counts) and summary disorderly conduct.

She faces a preliminary hearing tentatively scheduled Aug. 21 before District Judge Elizabeth Romig-Gainer.
