Woman allegedly sold heroin from hospital bed

Posted:
GREENSBURG, Pa. (AP) - A woman in western Pennsylvania is accused of selling heroin from a hospital intensive care unit and a hospital room.
Spokeswoman Jennifer Miele (MEE'-lee) for Excela Westmoreland Hospital in Greensburg says hospital security became suspicious of the large number of people flowing in and out of the woman's room.
Greensburg police say an undercover informant bought $90 worth of heroin Friday from the woman, who was being treated for an undisclosed ailment at the hospital. A police search of the room also uncovered $3,800 in heroin, two syringes and $1,400.
Thirty-eight-year-old Lori Sullenberger was charged Tuesday with felony and misdemeanor drug charges. It wasn't clear Tuesday evening if she had hired a lawyer. Two others who police say bought or had drugs from the woman face misdemeanor charges.
