Cops: Woman had 'clean' urine in sanitizer

GREENSBURG — Police say a western Pennsylvania woman has been caught dirty-handed trying to sneak a "clean" urine sample into a family court drug test — inside a hand sanitizer bottle.

The Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports 37-year-old Lori Lynn Sullenberger brought the urine-filled bottle when a judge ordered her to provide a sample as part of an Aug. 22 drug test relating to a child custody case.

A probation officer saw Sullenberger with the small bottle in her hand during the test, and seized it. Investigators say Sullenberger acknowledged it contained her own urine which she believed was drug-free, which she planned to use to pass the test.

Online court records don't list an attorney for Sullenberger who also doesn't have a listed phone.

She faces a preliminary hearing Dec. 12.
