Convicted woman rearrested Bail won't be set until after sentence

A 33-year-old Westminster woman arrested Friday on dru charges won't have her bail set until after she is sentenced today on a 1992 drug conviction.

Diane Lynn Wisner, of the 3500 block of Littlestown Pike, was arrested by members of the Carroll County Narcotics Task Force on Friday afternoon after they seized $2,800 worth of cocaine, three handguns, drug paraphernalia and nearly $3,400 in cash ++ from her home.

She was held without bond at the Carroll County Detention Center over the weekend.

Yesterday, she went before District Judge JoAnn Ellinghaus-Jones seeking bail.

But since Ms. Wisner was to be sentenced for a possession of cocaine with intent to distribute conviction this morning in Carroll County Circuit Court, Judge Ellinghaus-Jones postponed the bail review until this afternoon.

The Friday arrest resulted in new charges of possession with JTC intent to distribute cocaine, possession of cocaine and possession of drug paraphernalia being filed against Ms. Wisner.

An informant told task force officers that Ms. Wisner would be driving from Littlestown, Pa., into Maryland with drugs Friday afternoon, police said. Officers stopped her car and reported they found cocaine in it. After she and another passenger -- Jay Drew Boyd, 35 -- were arrested, task force officers obtained a search warrant for the home they share.

Ms. Wisner's earlier conviction stems from a task force stop of Ms. Wisner and her mother in Westminster last May 29 when the two were on their way home from a grocery store. Less than an ounce of cocaine was found in the car.

Her mother wasn't charged.
