A rural Norwalk woman has been indicted by a Huron County grand jury after her arrest last month on a pair of drug-related charges.
Gia L. Guerra, 42, of 1420 Ohio 61, was charged with one count each of possession of oxycodone and possession of hydromorphone, both in connection with a Nov. 16 incident.
Guerra was taken into custody by Huron County Sheriff's Detective Sgt. Josh Querin and Deputy Josh Kaufman, along with Erie County deputies at a Milliman Road residence. Querin said the investigation had been ongoing since November.
State liquor control agents also assisted.
Guerra is an employee at an Ohio 61 business.
"At the establishment, there were signs of prescription-pill abuse," Querin said. "We were able to seize numerous prescriptions pills Gia did not have a prescription for."
Querin said deputies found Guerra hiding under blankets at the Milliman Road residence upon her arrest.
Guerra was transported to the Huron County Jail.
Liquor control agents are also investigating Guerra on several possible liquor violations at the establishment, Querin said.
