Honesdale woman arrested again for possession of  controlled substances and drug paraphernalia

Posted

HONESDALE, PA — Wayne County District Attorney A.G. Howell announced today the second arrest of Kelly Lee Finan, 39, of Honesdale, Wayne County, PA. According to the Criminal Complaint Affidavit of Probable Cause, Finan is charged with 11 counts of Possession of a Controlled Substance, each being a misdemeanor, and 1 count of Possession of Drug Paraphernalia, a misdemeanor.

On July 15, 2021, Finan was arrested and charged with three counts of Delivery of a Controlled Substance, each being a felony, three counts of Criminal Use of Communication Facility, each being a felony 3rd degree, and three counts of Possession of a Controlled Substance, each being a misdemeanor. Those charges were filed as a result of an undercover drug investigation conducted by the Wayne County Drug Task Force in Honesdale Borough, Wayne County, PA.

When Finan was taken into custody in July, she was driving her vehicle. When she was searched, she was found to be in possession of drug paraphernalia. Wayne County Detectives then obtained a search warrant for Finan’s vehicle and during the search, Detectives found crystal methamphetamine, suboxone, ketamine, clonazepam, heroin, marijuana and cocaine within the vehicle. 

Finan was arraigned today from the Wayne County Correctional Facility, where she is currently housed, by Magisterial District Judge Myers. Her bail was set at $10,000 and her next court appearance is scheduled for Wednesday, September 8, at 9:00 a.m.

District Attorney Howell would again like to thank the Wayne County Drug Task Force, the Honesdale Borough Police Department and the Pike County Detective Bureau for their assistance in this case. The cooperation of these departments was instrumental in getting a significant drug dealer off the streets of Wayne County. 

*The filing of criminal charges is not evidence of guilt but simply a description of the charge made by the Commonwealth against a defendant. A charged Defendant is presumed innocent until a jury returns a unanimous finding that the Commonwealth has proven the defendant’s guilt beyond a reasonable doubt or until the defendant enters a guilty plea to the charges.*
