Visitor brings narcotics to hospital patient

WESTFIELD – City police were notified Friday night that a visitor apparently attempted to deliver heroin to a patient in the Baystate Noble Emergency Department.
A caller from the hospital’s security department called police at 10:04 p.m. Friday to report that a “suspicious “ visitor attempted to deliver food, a grinder, to her father, a patient in the emergency room. The caller said that a security officer examined the sandwich “and found packets of what they believe to be heroin.”
Officer Joseph Pescitelli responded to the call and reports that the visitor had left the hospital, reportedly on a bicycle, before he arrived. Officers searched the area but the suspect was not found.
Police Capt. Michael McCabe said Monday that the suspect has been identified and and that a warrant for her arrest has been issued.
