A second arrest has resulted from a Huron County sheriff's office drug investigation of a U.S. 20 residence in Wakeman.

On Wednesday, Christopher Hembree, 31, of 5810 U.S. 20, Lot 151, was arrested by deputies and charged with possession of methamphetamine.

"It was found in the residence and he (Hembree) made admissions to abusing methamphetamine before," Detective Sgt. Josh Querin said.

Hembree was transported to the county jail.

"He was cooperative," Querin said. "No meth-lab equipment was recovered, just the suspected meth (residue) and smoking device."

On Tuesday morning, Elizabeth Lee, 26, of the same address, was arrested and charged with possession of heroin as she allegedly drove to Lorain and purchased heroin. She was stopped by officers as she came back into the village.

Querin said Lee permitted a search of the residence on U.S. 20.

"Inside the residence, we found a number of drug-related items such as marijuana-smoking devices, marijuana and a suspected meth-smoking device with residue," he said. "There were also prescription pills."

Lee and Hembree's 7-year-old daughter was with Lee at the time of her arrest Tuesday.

"Children's Services took custody of the child," Querin said.
