She was arraigned by District Judge Robert Redlinger and taken to the Washington County jail on $15,000 bond.

Later in the day, police raided a home at 901A Meadow Ave. and arrested 53-year-old Greta Jo Steiner. Police said they found six bricks of suspected heroin, 12 stamp bags and $2,150 in cash in various places inside Steiner’s home. She was charged with drug possession with intent to deliver, possession of a controlled substance, possession of drug paraphernalia and illegal use of a communications device, according to court records.

Redlinger arraigned Steiner on the charges, and she also was taken to jail on $15,000 bond.
