Fire Victim Allegedly Sells Drugs


Just three days after flames destroyed her Hazle Township home, a local
woman was charged with trying to sell crack at Hazleton General
Hospital. News 13 has been following the story of Melvin and Subreena
Lowe, who lost their West Hazleton home in a fire earlier this month. We
have just learned Monday that Subreena Lowe was charged with trying to
sell crack at Hazleton General Hospital, just three days after that
blaze destroyed her home. Police said they went to the hospital on the
morning of February 9, after receiving information that a woman was
selling crack cocaine from inside the hospital. That’s when police found
Lowe on the 3rd floor with a small amount of the suspected drug. Lowe
will ultimately have to answer to the charges before District Judge
Zola, but she denied allegations Friday morning to News 13, saying “she
has no time, with the condition of her husband’s health, to do such
things.” News 13 also spoke with Cathleen Benyo Friday morning who had
just learned of the allegations and says ” she is shocked by the
revelation and if in fact if these allegations prove to be true, she and
her husband who have gone above and beyond to provide a home for the
couple, will continue to have zero tolerance for this type of activity.
The Benyo’s aren’t the only ones who came to the Lowes’ aid in the days
after the fire. The Pulaski Club presented $1,000 to her and her
husband. Lowe was charged with possession of a controlled substance and
possession of drug paraphernalia.
