A former Norwalk woman was arrested Tuesday afternoon on an allegation she sold several types of tablets to a confidential informant.
Rachel C. Mock, 28, now of Bowling Green, was arrested about 4:10 p.m. after a controlled drug buy.
"Ms. Mock sold prescription medication to a confidential informant in the parking lot of Gardner's SuperValu grocery store. She was arrested without incident after a traffic stop was conducted a short time after she left the parking lot," Norwalk Police Detective Sgt. Jim Fulton said.
"Mock sold four Clonazepam 1 mg tablets, six Diazepam 10 mg tablets and five amphetamine/dextroamphetamine 30 mg tablets to the confidential informant," Fulton said.
Clonazepam and Diazepam are Schedule II controlled substances. Amphetamine/dextroamphetamine is a Schedule IV controlled substance.
Mock was charged with three counts of trafficking in drugs. Each of the third-degree felonies is punishable by one to five years in prison.
Officers searched Mock as part of her arrest when she was booked into the Huron County Jail. Police reported recovering $85 from the suspect.
"This included the buy money ($55) she received from the confidential informant during the controlled buy," Fulton said.
Police seized the 1999 Ford ZX2 Mock was driving, which could be subject to forfeiture.
"This investigation is ongoing and additional arrests are likely," Fulton said.
Investigators from METRICH, a 10-county drug task force, were involved in the probe.
