A Norwalk woman was arrested Tuesday morning on parole violation and drug-related charges.

"I stopped a vehicle on West Seminary Street for fictitious license plates," Huron County Sheriff's Detective Sgt. Josh Querin said.

A passenger in the vehicle, Megan L. Derby, 28, of 7 Adams St., appeared to be under the influence of some sort of narcotic, Querin said.

Derby was already on parole through the Adult Parole Authority.

Parole officers Andrea Cooke and Steve Bogner responded to the scene at the request of Querin.

"Officer Cooke also believed Megan Derby was under the influence of narcotics," Querin said.

Querin and the parole officers then proceeded to Derby's Adams Street residence.

"We conducted a search at the residence and located numerous syringes used for heroin and a small amount of suspected heroin," Querin said.

Derby, who had been released from prison recently, tested positive for several narcotics Tuesday.

"She made admissions she was using heroin again," Querin said.

"She was taken to jail for the probation violation and possession of heroin charge," he added.

Querin, Detective Eric Bardar and the Adult Parole Authority conducted the investigation.

"We are going to continue to make it a priority to go after people abusing and selling drugs in our community," Querin said.
