SEBRING, Ohio (WKBN) — A woman was arrested Friday night after police responded to a call of a possible burglary and discovered drugs in the home, according to a release.
Michelle Powell, 33, was booked into the Mahoning County Justice Center late Friday night after Sebring Police Department seized various drug paraphernalia from her home, the department released.
According to the release, the department was called to a home on the 400 block of E.

Inside, officers found 49 grams of psilocybin mushrooms, 6 grams of methamphetamine and various pills, in addition to unspecified drug paraphernalia and THC products, the release stated.
While the release does not go into further detail regarding the reported burglary attempt, it states the resident of the home, Powell, was placed under arrest.
Powell is facing charges of possession of a controlled substance, five counts; possession of drug paraphernalia; and permitting drug abuse. Bond was set at $20,000 and she is set to appear in court for arraignment Nov. 2.
