A Lorain woman convicted of a heroin-related felony was sent back to a locked down treatment facility after admitting Thursday to violating terms of her probation.

Elizabeth A. Lee, 27, of Lorain, was found guilty of possession of heroin in connection with a June 25, 2013 traffic stop.

Detectives had arranged a controlled drug buy in which a confidential informant was supposed to buy heroin.

"As the confidential informant returned to the area -- to Wakeman, the Wakeman Police Department stopped a vehicle for a traffic violation," Kasper has said. "Elizabeth Lee was a passenger in the vehicle. She stepped out. She was cooperative with officers."

Lee turned over a pack of cigarettes, which she said was hers. A lab analysis of material in the pack determined it was .1 gram of heroin.

Huron County Assistant Prosecutor Daivia Kasper said while in a Community Based Corrections Facility (CBFC), Lee used Percocet pills for which she didn't have a prescription and tried to alter a urine sample. Therefore, she was terminated from the facility, Kasper said.

The prosecutor said Huron County Common Pleas Judge Jim Conway ordered her to return to a CBCF to complete the program. Defendants spend time in CBCF to receive education about drug abuse and get treatment.
