Matamoras woman sentenced for resisting arrest


December 24, 2013

Nicole Devries, age 22, of Matamoras, was sentenced to a state correctional facility for 25 to 60 months, ordered to pay a fine of $ 1,750 and had her driver’s license suspended for two years for resisting arrest, escaping from parole officials, recklessly endangering another person, driving under the influence and possessing drug paraphernalia.

On November 9, 2012, in Westfall Township, Pike County Probation was attempting to arrest Devries after she failed a random drug test. According to a press release from the Pike County District Attorney’s office, “Devries ran from the probation officers and drove her vehicle, dragging both probation officers. Devries later returned to the residence and was placed under arrest.”

A chemical test of Devries showed she was driving under the influence of morphine. A search of her residence recovered five hypodermic needles.

Two years ago, Devries was sentenced to 12 months of probation, ordered to pay a fine of $200 and had her driver’s license suspended for six months for possession of heroin.
