WOMAN HIDES DRUGS, NEEDLES IN KIDS’ CLOTHES

 

(Port Huron)  A 33 year old Port Huron woman decided to hide her methamphetamine, heroin, needles and pills in her children’s clothing at her home.  It didn’t work, as the St. Clair County Drug Task Force located the drugs and arrested the woman and her 29 year old Port Huron boyfriend this morning.

 

According to Sheriff Tim Donnellon, the DTF concluded an investigation into the sales of heroin in Port Huron by executing a search warrant in the 1100 block of Rawlins Street at about 9:30 a.m. today.

 

While searching the home, members of the DTF found and confiscated $3200 worth of heroin, $2600 worth of analogue pills and suboxone strips, methamphetamine and marijuana.  Also seized in the raid were computer tablets, laptop computers, cell phones, cash, drug paraphernalia, packaging material and scales.

 

Thankfully, the two children, both under the age of 10, were at their father’s home at the time of the raid.  The Drug Task Force contacted the St. Clair County Department of Health and Human Services, who will investigate the children’s safety.

 

The pair of suspects were arrested at the home and lodged at the St. Clair County Intervention and Detention Center.  They are expected to face charges including possession with intent to deliver heroin, possession with intent to deliver analogue drugs, possession of methamphetamine, possession of marijuana, maintaining a drug house, habitual offender and child endangerment.

 

Port Huron Police Road Patrol assisted at the scene of the raid.
