A recent incident in Fayette County has led to the arrest of a young woman involved in a drug trafficking scheme.
Kylee J. Moore, a 21-year-old resident of Vanderbilt, found herself behind bars after receiving a significant amount of crystal methamphetamine from an undercover officer in Rostraver.
According to court documents, Moore had intended to transport the drugs to an alleged drug dealer.
The arrest took place on Tuesday, and Moore is now facing multiple drug-related charges, including conspiracy.
Who is Kylee Moore? Fayette County Woman Arrested for Drug Trafficking Scheme
The investigation began when law enforcement officials collaborated with a confidential informant to establish contact with Christion Robinson, a 25-year-old individual from Connellsville.
Robinson then made arrangements for Moore to meet the informant and an undercover officer at a gas station in Rostraver.
The Westmoreland County Drug Task Force, along with township police and agents from the state Attorney General’s office, coordinated a surveillance operation around the designated meeting spot, which was scheduled for 5 p.m.
As planned, Moore met with the undercover officer at the gas station. The exchange involved cash in return for the crystal methamphetamine.
However, unbeknownst to Moore, law enforcement officials swiftly apprehended her following the transaction. She was taken into custody without incident.
Upon her arrest, Moore was transported to the Westmoreland County Prison, where bail was set at $250,000.
It is worth noting that no attorney was listed for her in online court records at the time of writing.
A preliminary hearing is scheduled for June 5, during which further details of the case will be presented.
In addition to Moore’s arrest, Christion Robinson also faced legal consequences.
On Wednesday, Robinson was charged with criminal use of a communication facility, as well as drug and conspiracy offenses.
Similar to Moore, he was detained at the Westmoreland County Prison.
At the time of writing, Robinson did not have legal representation listed in online court records. His preliminary hearing is scheduled for June 7.
