Pennsylvania Woman Jailed for Heroin Hidden in Police Car


By Kelli Sutterman

MCDONALD, Pa. (AP) — A western Pennsylvania woman is jailed on charges that she hid heroin in a police car when she was previously arrested for a probation violation in August.

Online court records don't list an attorney for 43-year-old Tina Bioni, formerly of Robinson Township, Washington County.

The Observer-Reporter of Washington, Pa. says she was arrested during a visit to the county probation office Wednesday.

Police say Bioni had 187 single-dose bags with her during the August arrest and hid them in the door of a police car. Police say she bragged about hiding the drugs to a county jail cellmate, who alerted authorities. Police found the drugs and filed charges against Bioni.

She remained in the county jail Thursday, unable to post $25,000 bond.
