Police: Suspected 19-Year-Old Drug Dealer Arrested

The Willow Grove woman has a history of drug related arrests.

 

Abington Police arrested a 19-year-old Willow Grove woman who they believe was selling marijuana.

Angelina Marcucci, 19, of Fairview Avenue, was arrested June 6 at 12:52 a.m. following a traffic stop in which she was a passenger near the corner of Moreland and Easton roads, police said. The vehicle, which was traveling westbound on Moreland Road, was driving without its tail lights activated.

Marcucci was one of three occupants in the vehicle — all were visibly nervous and shaking, according to police.

There was an odor of raw marijuana emanating from the vehicle, and Marcucci said, “I have some baggies of marijuana in my purse.”

Following a search of the vehicle, police found a green pill bottle located in the rear seat pouch next to where Marcucci was sitting. The bottle contained a $10 bill and 16 clear plastic baggies containing suspected marijuana.

Police also searched Marcucci’s purse.

In it, they found several new and unused purple plastic baggies commonly used to package drugs and $414.

According to affidavit, “… the presence of new and unused plastic baggies is another sign that Marcucci is selling marijuana.” 

Including the June 6 incident, Marcucci has five pending cases involving drug charges. 

According to court documents, one of those cases is scheduled for a pre-trial conference later this week. 

She also has a November 2011 conviction for disorderly conduct.

Definitely a repeat offender. This isn't even her first time being reported on by Patch: http://abington.patch.com/articles/abington-police-reports-sept-15 http://abington.patch.com/articles/abington-police-reports-aug-22

The drug problem in our society is worse than most people realize. It has become out of control.

Wish they would just legalize this stuff already so the police and court system can focus on more important things than a teen girl who loves marijuana.
Marc Lombardi June 19, 2012 at 06:31 PM
And all of the other teens she loves selling it to. Look, I agree that in terms of problems in our country, marijuana is waaaaay down on the list. But in our area, it's DUIs, DWIs and theft, so that's where the focus is. The fact of the matter is that marijuana IS illegal, using it AND selling it. This girl broke the law. She clearly KNEW about the law because of her past arrests, so it's her own stupidity that led her to continue down the path.
Jim E June 19, 2012 at 07:14 PM
Yeah. I'm not defending her. She must be stupid to be stopped and searched by police every few months and have 5 pending charges against her. But I just get tired of reading about the waste of time and resources all throughout the country on petty drug crimes. I'm new to the area BTW...from Philly, and I must say that the DUI's, shoplifting, marijuana busts, reported about on this site, is a nice change from all the murders, rapes, armed robberies of the city. I guess I should be glad that the police and court systems around here work hard to make sure this area doesn't turn into that.

Marc, don't tell me we actually agree on something. History could actually be made today!
