The St. Clair County Drug Task Force (DTF) ended an investigation into the sales of crack cocaine and heroin in the Port Huron area with drug seizures and an arrest. According to Sheriff Tim Donnellon, the investigation culminated with the execution of a search warrant in the 800 block of Pine Street on January 15th. Members of the DTF entered the residence and seized about $1300 worth of crack cocaine and approximately $1000 worth of heroin.
As a result of the seizure, a 46-year-old Port Huron woman, Molly Whitcher, was arrested and taken to the St. Clair County Intervention and Detention Center. Whitcher was arraigned January 17th with charges including possession with intent to deliver cocaine, possession with intent to deliver heroin, maintaining a drug house and being a habitual second offender.
She is being held on a $20,000 cash/surety bond. Whitcher’s next court date is a probable cause hearing on January 28th before Judge Michael Hulewicz in the 72nd District Court in Port Huron.
