An Ellwood City woman has been charged with possession of a controlled substance, endangering the welfare of children, and several other charges after falling asleep at McDonald’s as her children ate and played.
Darcy Kelosky, 33, of Wampum Ave., Ellwood City, was arrested Tuesday night at McDonald’s in Ellwood City. Kelosky’s preliminary arraignment was postponed until today because she was admitted to the hospital the night of the incident.
According to the report, a manager for McDonald’s contacted police at approximately 9:40 p.m. Tuesday for a woman who was falling asleep at a table with her two children. When police arrived, they found Kelosky in a confused state with her 2-and 3-year-old kids.
Police took Kelosky into custody – her kids were taken to Lawrence County Children and Youth Services. Police suspect Kelosky was under the influence of a substantial amount of drugs.
Upon arrest, police found over 50 ‘stamp bags’ of heroin on Kelosky, according to the report. The accused was allegedly unable to answer simple questions asked by police, such as stating her last name.
Kelosky was arraigned in front of Magistrate Jerry Cartwright this afternoon.
Her charges include possession of a controlled substance with intent to deliver, endangering the welfare of children, giving false identification to law enforcement, and public intoxication.
