Three people were arrested on drug-related charges Friday after a joint investigation by the Huron County Sheriff's Office and the Norwalk Police Department.

Arrested were Roger James, 24, and his girlfriend, Holly Daniel, 22, of 52 South Old State Road, Apt. A.

Vincent Poland was also arrested.

"We have been investigating them (James and Daniel) selling and using heroin for a couple of weeks now," said Detective Sgt. Josh Querin of the sheriff's office.

"We conducted a buy-bust operation today where four bindles of suspected heroin was purchased.

"The buy-bust took place in Norwalk and the seller, Roger James, was arrested after the transaction. A search warrant was prepared and was executed at the same time he was taken into custody.

"Both admitted they have a heroin problem. There was a small amount of heroin found at the house and numerous pieces of heroin paraphernalia.

"There was approximately $400 at the scene as well. A third subject by the name of Vincent Poland, who was recently released from prison, was arrested for possession of a drug abuse instrument."

Daniel was arrested for complicity to trafficking in heroin and possession or heroin. James was arrested for trafficking in heroin. They are all incarcerated. Roger and Holly will have a bond hearing, probably over the weekend, and Poland's bond was set at 10 percent of $5,000.

"We've been working on it about 10 days. It was a great investigation between the two agencies. They (James and Daniel) admitted they were making trips to Cleveland to make the purchases."
