Rural Norwalk residents arrested on new charges

A pair of rural Norwalk residents, recently arrested, were in custody again Thursday on additional drug and burglary charges.
"In April 2014, the Huron County Sheriff's Office executed a drug-related search warrant at 1220 Ohio 61 E. and three individuals were arrested on drug charges," Detective Sgt. Josh Querin said.
"Two of those individuals were re-arrested today (Thursday) at 11:48 a.m. on more drug-related warrants, just three months after they were first arrested," Querin said.
Arrested Thursday were Darrel D. Keegan, 23, and Felicia M. Eldridge, 21.
Keegan and Eldridge face the new charges of possession of oxycodone and possession of oxymorphone.
"There were numerous illegal prescription pills found the individuals didn't have a prescription for," Querin said.
Querin said there were also thousands of dollars of stolen property identified at the property.
Keegan and Eldridge are suspects in a burglary in the city of Huron, according to Querin.
Huron police officers, who assisted in the execution of the warrant, positively identified the stolen property, Querin said.
"They will face the burglary charge in Erie County," he added.
"Obviously, these two individuals haven't learned their lesson because three months later we are dealing with them again," Querin said.
"We will continue to step up the efforts to arrest drug traffickers and abusers in Huron County," he added.
