Lansdale Woman Gets Five-Year Probation for Dealing Drugs

Sara Seip, 22, of North Broad Street, was under surveillance by Lansdale Police since November 2010

A Lansdale woman Tuesday avoided jail time and was sentenced to five years’ probation in Montgomery County Court of Common Pleas, related to two drug sale and possession incidents in the borough.

According to Peg Gibbons of The Intelligencer, Sara M. Seip, 22, of the 200 block of North Broad Street, was the target of an investigation by Lansdale Police since November 2010 when it was reported Seip peddled marijuana, hash and ecstasy, according to the article.

As part of her sentencing, Seip also has to perform 48 hours of community service and pay $500 in fines, according to the article.

Seip sold two purple pills to a confidential informant for $40 on April 20, 2011 behind St. John’s United Church of Christ, according to the article.

On August 14, 2012, Montgomery Township Police stopped Seip’s car on County Line Road because her tinted windows were not legal, according to the article.

According to the article, a criminal complaint stated burnt marijuana could be smelled in Seip’s car by the township officer. Seip was the passenger in her own car on that date.

The driver told police he and Seip were smoking pot, according to the article. Upon asking if there was more marijuana in the car, Seip opened the glove box and handed over a joint, according to the article.
