EUGENE, Ore. – A woman was arrested in a sting operation after police said she tried to sell drugs at a Eugene church.

Police said they’d been alerted to possible drug activity at an apartment at 100 E. 11th Avenue. The suspect, Sharon Eigner, 52, had allegedly been associating herself with a group of drug dealers.

In a sting, officers said Eigner agreed to meet and sell heroin to them at the First Christian Church, 1166 Oak St., where she is a volunteer.

Police said Eigner had individually packaged amounts of heroin with customer name labels on them.

A search warrant was granted, and police said they found additional evidence of drug dealing and the shipping of marijuana out of state, as well as evidence of her association with a group of drug dealers. In total, more than 40 items were seized.

Eigner faces charges of possession and delivery of heroin and possession of methamphetamine.

Police said they also found codeine, methadone, suboxone, psilocybin mushrooms, and other schedule four pills.
