A Quakertown woman is headed to state prison for bringing heroin and fentanyl to the borough with the intention of distributing it to other users, the Bucks County District Attorney’s office announced in a news release published on Crimewatch Tuesday.
Enileska Timarky, 28, pleaded guilty Oct. 1 to possession with intent to deliver a controlled substance in a case prosecutors said began with her arrest in March with more than 300 bags, or nearly 10 grams, of the drugs.
Quakertown Borough Police found the drugs packaged in bags stamped “Viking” during a traffic stop conducted several blocks from Timarky’s West Broad Street apartment, the news release said.
According to a criminal complaint it cited, Timarky said she was the owner of both a black backpack and the drugs found inside it during the traffic stop.
Timarky later told investigators she was bringing the drugs to Quakertown from Philadelphia with the intention of using some and distributing the rest.
Bucks County Court of Common Pleas President Judge Wallace H. Bateman accepted Timarky’s open plea and sentenced her to two-and-a-half to five years in state prison and a concurrent seven-year term of probation.
Under the Recidivism Risk Reduction Incentive (RRRI) statute, the district attorney’s office said Timarky could see early release from prison in twenty-two-and-a-half months.
Timarky had no previous drug convictions in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, according to a search of court records.
The case was investigated by the Quakertown Borough Police Department with assistance from Bucks County detectives. It was prosecuted by Deputy District Attorney Thomas C. Gannon.
