Norwalk woman to be interviewed for intervention

A rural Norwalk woman will be interviewed for the substance abuse intervention program.

Gia L. Guerra, 42, of 1420 Ohio 61, is charged with one count each of possession of oxycodone and possession of hydromorphone. Both charges are in connection with a Nov. 16 incident.

Defense attorney Paul Dolce said his client has been pro-active and has secured some substance abuse-related evaluations.

Guerra was arrested Feb. 6 at a Milliman Road residence. She was taken into custody by Huron County Sheriff's Detective Sgt. Josh Querin and Deputy Josh Kaufman, along with Erie County sheriff's deputies. State liquor control agents also assisted with the investigation.

Querin has said there were signs of prescription-pill abuse at an Ohio 61 business where Guerra works and deputies seized numerous pills for which she didn't have a prescription.

If Guerra is granted intervention, that means she would be placed on probation and if she successfully completes a substance abuse program, she wouldn't have a conviction on her record.
