A woman was caught with drugs at a fast-food restaurant after a worker heard her drop a needle and spoon in a bathroom stall, officials said.

Lisa Marie Repnyek was found with five tablets of clonazepam, a muscle relaxant used to treat seizures and panic disorder, in the Wendy's restaurant at 306 Broadway, Bethlehem, at about 3:30 p.m. May 17, officials said.

Police searched Repnyek after a restaurant employee identified Repnyek as the person who dropped the drug paraphernalia in a bathroom stall, officials said.


Repnyek, 47, of 556 South Clewell St., Bethlehem, was arraigned Sunday night on charges of possession of a controlled substance and possession of drug paraphernalia and committed to the Northampton County Prison on $2,000 bail, according to court documents.

A preliminary hearing is set for 11 a.m. June 26.
