CRAWFORD-ROBERTS (KDKA)- A Sharpsburg woman is facing charges for allegedly selling Xanax pills while her two kids were in the car.
Police noticed Jamie Xolo’s car parked along Roberts Street in the Crawford-Roberts section of Pittsburgh. Officers say where she was parked is a known area for drug activity.
They noticed a man get into the back seat of her car. When officers approached, the man dropped a bag of seven Xanax pills out of the window.
That man, Robert Thompson, was placed into custody and faces drug possession charges.
Police say they asked Xolo, who was driving the car and if she had any other drugs on her. At first she said, “No.” Then, according to the criminal complaint, Xolo handed them two Xanax pills in a bottle.
A female officer was called to the scene to search Xolo. She ended up finding a bag containing more than 240 Xanax pills hidden in Xolo’s bra.
During the time of the bust, Xolo’s two children, ages 5 and 11, were inside the car. They were taken to the Zone 2 police station and released into the care of a family member.
Xolo was charged with intent to sell drugs and child endangerment. She was taken to the Allegheny County Jail.
