Prosecutors are considering charges in connection with the seizure of multiple heroin-related items from a Norwalk apartment.

Huron County Sheriff's Deputy Josh Kaufman recently received a tip about heroin possibly inside a Bouscay Avenue residence. Kaufman and Sgt. Tod Wagner went to the apartment Sunday.

"They knocked on the door. They were greeted by a 34-year-old female resident," Chief Deputy Ted Patrick said.

"They discussed with her about the possibility of heroin being in the apartment. She admitted there was heroin inside. She signed a consent-to-search form," he added.

Deputies seized five balloons of suspected heroin and multiple items of drug paraphernalia, including burnt spoons, inhaling straws and tin foil. Patrick said the officers also found "heroin residue on razor blades."

The sheriff's office forwarded the evidence to the Ohio Bureau of Criminal Investigation for testing.

No arrests were made, but deputies forwarded a report to the Norwalk Law Director's Office for the consideration of filing charges
