BELLE VERNON – A Smock woman is facing a number of drug charges after she allegedly crashed her car Wednesday and then took off.

Heather Nicole Evon, 30, of 700 First St., crashed her 1994 Plymouth Duster into two parked cars along Main Street, Belle Vernon, 4:25 p.m., Southwest Regional Police said.

The vehicles, which sustained moderate damage, are owned by Chet Burnside, of Perryopolis, and Lori Stewart, of Belle Vernon.

Police said Evon left the scene but finally stopped on Route 201 near the Route 51 interchange.

Police said they allegedly found stamp bags of suspected heroin and a large amount of drug paraphernalia in her car.

Evon is charged with possession of a controlled substance, possession of drug paraphernalia, DUI, accidents involving damage to unattended vehicles or property, duty to give information and render aid, and driving under suspension.

She was arraigned before District Judge Jesse Cramer and remanded to the Fayette County Jail in lieu of $7,500 bond.

In an unrelated case, Evon was charged June 12 at Wal-Mart for possession of a controlled substance (suspected heroin) and possession of drug paraphernalia.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
