Sheriff: Newark woman possessed 60 bags of heroin, sold nearly 50 more

Foot chase ensues after traffic stop in Ontario County

Sheriff Kevin Henderson reports the arrest of two Wayne County residents following an investigation by the Special Investigations Unit.

He says a vehicle being operated by Rebecca Lichorowic, 36, of Newark was stopped by deputies on Outlet Road in the town of Manchester for traffic violations. During the course of a traffic stop, Lichorowic was found to be in possession of 60 bags of heroin.

She was taken into custody and charged with third-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance. It was then determined through additional investigation that Lichorowic sold another 47 bags of heroin to another person in Manchester earlier that afternoon.

Robbin Knight-Collins, 31, of Lyons was a passenger inside Lichorowic’s vehicle and was found to be in possession of marijuana and crack cocaine.

Sheriff Henderson says Knight-Collins attempted to flee on foot when deputies tried to arrest him. A foot chase ensued and eventually he was taken into custody.

Knight-Collins was charged with seventh-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance, resisting arrest, and unlawful possession of marijuana.

Lichorowic was arraigned in Ontario County CAP Court and released on her own recognizance. Knight-Collins was issued an appearance ticket.

Henderson says that additional charges against Lichorowic will be presented to an Ontario County Grand Jury. The Sheriff’s Office says they were assisted by the Wayne County Sheriff’s Office, Geneva Police Department, and Newark Police Department.
