2 Hudson women face robbery, oxycodone charges

PORT RICHEY — Two women were arrested Tuesday on charges of robbery and trafficking oxycodone after authorities say they assaulted and robbed a woman, and had illegal drugs at their homes.

According to a report from the Pasco County Sheriff’s Office, the women — Kathryn McKean, 26, and Doreen Darby, 23 — followed a 22-year-old woman Monday evening to a Dollar General store and confronted her in the restroom.

The victim, whose name was not released, told deputies that the women hit her in the face and arms. After McKean took her purse, the report said, the victim chased the women out to the parking lot of the store at 11928 U.S. 19, just south of State Road 52.

McKean and Darby struck the woman “multiple” times and emptied her purse, the report said. Authorities said McKean took the woman’s cell phone and change purse and fled in Darby’s 1991 Cadillac Deville.

Witnesses helped lead deputies to McKean and Darby, who were arrested Tuesday at Mc­Kean’s address, 9311 Bolton Ave. in Hudson. McKean said the woman stole money from her, and Darby said she was not involved in the fight.

Both women also picked up charges of trafficking oxycodone after authorities found the drugs at McKean’s home. The pills were obtained by a third party using a fake prescription under Mc­Kean’s sister’s name, the report said.

Darby, of 10027 Daybreak Drive in Hudson, and McKean are being held in lieu of $60,000 bail at the Land O’Lakes jail.

    The Heater

    BALTIMORE — We know what the Rays look like this year: a team that had enough talent but too many flaws, in construction and performance, and in the next few days will be officially eliminated from a wild-card race it had a chance to win but let slip away.

    Adeiny Hechavarria, high-fiving Lucas Duda, seems likely to be brought back.
