Lansing woman faces felony drug charges after warrant execution

On Thursday the Ithaca SWAT Team served a search warrant at a residence on Holden Road in Lansing.

A search of the residence resulted in the recovery of heroin, cocaine, scales, packaging materials, paraphernalia and cash. Also located in the residence was a small but very detailed marijuana grow operation.

The resident, Sarah R. Monroe, was arrested on scene and charged with two counts of criminal possession of a controlled substance, with the intent to sell heroin and cocaine, as well as criminal possession of a controlled substance in the fifth degree.



Investigators with the Ithaca Police Department and Tompkins County Sheriffs Department also participated in the search warrant service.

Later in the day Monroe was arraigned in Danby Town Court.

Monroe was remanded to the Tompkins County Jail without bail. She is currently on NYS Parole and a Parole Warrant was issued based on these charges.
