A Baker woman was arrested Tuesday, after the Bogalusa Police Department received a call from the staff at Our Lady of Angels Hospital in reference to someone being passed out in a patient’s room with needles still in their arms, according to Maj. Percy Knight, the BPD’s public information officer.

“A nurse advised the officers of the Bogalusa Police Department that she entered the room, and found the patient’s wife with a tourniquet and needle in her arm,” Knight said. “After a search of the room was conducted, the following items were located: assorted pills identified as Oxycodone, Tramadol, Percocet and Clonazepam, two tourniquets, one zip lock bag containing cotton filters, one measuring cup, one spoon, short straws, one baggie of suspected heroin, one baggie of a brown crystallized substance and 13 hypodermic needles.”

Knight said Jamie Pilarczyk, 34, was arrested and booked on the following charges: two counts of possession of Schedule II narcotics, two counts of possession of Schedule IV narcotics, and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Knight said that Pilarczyk’s husband could possibly be arrested on a warrant at a later time.
