PIQUA — A Delphos woman was recently taken into custody after allegedly stealing a vehicle from a Piqua man.
Christina L. Queen, 28, is accused of stealing the keys to a 1998 Ford Econoline van from the victim’s girlfriend and leaving with the vehicle without the owner’s consent in the area of Broadway and High streets on Aug. 17, at 2:50 p.m. According to Miami County Municipal Court records, the vehicle was later recovered in a parking lot on the 300 block of North College Street.
Queen reportedly refused to come in to be questioned in connection with this incident during the following week. She was charged with fourth-degree felony theft and a warrant was requested.
Queen was picked up over the weekend on the 300 block of North College Street on an unrelated warrant out of Montgomery County. When she was taken into custody, she was reportedly found with various suspected drugs and drug paraphernalia in her backpack, including numerous pills, suspected heroin, a suspected crack pipe, and a digital scale.
According to court records, Queen admitted to using the pipe to smoke crack cocaine, but denied that the pills and the digital scale were hers. The pills are believed to include Clonazepam, Acetaminophen and Hydrocodone, and Alprazolam. All of the suspected drugs were sent to the Miami Valley Regional Crime Lab for analysis.
Queen was charged with multiple drug-related charges, including three counts of third-degree felony tampering with drugs, fifth-degree felony possession of heroin, fifth-degree felony possession of drugs, two counts of first-degree misdemeanor possession of drugs, and fourth-degree misdemeanor possession of drug paraphernalia.
Queen was arraigned on these charges on Monday. She is currently being held at the Miami County Jail on a total of $22,500 bond. Her next court date is scheduled for Sept. 7.
