Oneonta woman charged with heroin sale
A 20-year-old woman was arrested recently for allegedly selling heroin in the City of Oneonta, according to a release from the Otsego County Sheriff’s Department.
Sheriff’s Office Investigators and state parole officers arrested Shelby Maureen Mochrie on June 11 after she was located leaving an Oneonta residence, the release said.
Mochrie, of Oneonta, was charged with third-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance, a felony.
The arrest was the result of an incident that took place in Oneonta in early January, during which a quantity of heroin was purchased from Mochrie, according to the release.
Mochrie was arraigned by Oneonta City Judge Lucy Bernier and sent to the Otsego County Correctional Facility on $15,000 bail, according to the release. She is scheduled to return to court July 9.
Mochrie could face up to nine years in prison if convicted, the release said. District Attorney John M. Muehl is prosecuting the case.
