Convicted drug dealer Susan J. Terlizzi plans to appeal a jury's decision finding her guilty of selling marijuana.

"It's just wrong. I plan to appeal absolutely," the 44-year-old Wakeman resident said. "My attorney is aware of that. I'm going to prove my innocence."

On April 19, 2006, she sold "less than 100 grams" of marijuana to a female confidential informant at the Firelands Manor Mobile Home Park, Wakeman Police Chief Tim Hunker said. Terlizzi was one of several people accused in connection with the drug bust organized by the METRICH Drug Task Force.

After a two-day trial that started Tuesday, Terlizzi, of 5810 U.S. 20, Lot 1, is scheduled to be sentenced Jan. 3. The jury determined she didn't commit the offense in the vicinity of a juvenile.

"We had made other purchases from her (involving) both adults and juveniles," said Hunker, whose department has been affiliated with METRICH since about 2002.

Terlizzi has been suspected of dealing marijuana from her mobile home since the end of 2005 or the beginning of 2006. "We received information that drugs were being sold there and some drugs were being brought to the village," the chief said.

Both Hunker and Huron County Sheriff's Capt. Bob McLaughlin testified for the state. At the end of 2005, McLaughlin said the sheriff's office started getting about 12 calls from park residents who "made complaints of drug trafficking throughout the park," specifically at Terlizzi's home.

"She was selling marijuana to young people in the Wakeman area," McLaughlin said. "The chief complaints were made through Chief Hunker."

Terlizzi called the allegations "a conspiracy thing." She wants to hire a professional to further evaluate the compact disc of the confidential informant's wire to determine "who was selling and not selling."

"A lot of it is inaudible," Terlizzi said. "I'm taking my gloves off. I'm going to be fighting."

Terlizzi was arrested on a warrant May 11, 2006 by McLaughlin and charged with trafficking in marijuana.

One of the suspects in the Terlizzi case was Keith A. Wilhelm, formerly of 3033 U.S. 250, Greenwich. In August 2006, Wilhelm, now 20, was sentenced to four months in the Huron County Jail and three years of probation for two counts of trafficking in marijuana.

Terlizzi was released Oct. 30 from the Huron County Jail after posting a $500 bond on a driving under the influence (DUI) charge.

Trooper Dan Dubelko stopped her Oct. 25 on U.S. 20 near the Lorain County line on a equipment violation. The trooper charged her with DUI after recognizing an "odor of alcohol" and Terlizzi took several sobriety tests, Lt. Jim Bryan said.

real officer (A...

Dear josh,
you are such a fool! no kkk tattoos anywhere!! lol

he is a cheater and a liar and lazy!!
no one else wants josh ! his wife left him for awhile,she got dumber and went back.
if cancel had a curial back ground wouldnt it say that on the form from bci??
ya we know josh you say whatever you can to look good!you are a fat lazy slob and im sorry wakeman hasnt fired you YET!!!
as far as navy seal,i was told he was UDT under water demolition and at least he didnt wash out of boot camp!
it must suck being stuck here(wakeman sgt)no other dept wants you,you tired new bergh hts p.d and they took two fresh out of the academy from wakeman over you,then you shot off your mouth about going back to the cleveland clinic and they laughed at you,then you thought better about the state hwy patrol knowing you couldnt pass the pt test. im advice to you is stay awake and keep the job you have before you wash out of it too!!
p.s all the fopa/fop dinner is dec 14th at wakeman eagles maybe someone can ask josh why he was shooting off his mouth to john about his affair with the neighbor lady . He was proud of it then now he is calling the paper and having the blogs removed? What happened to freedom of speech??
by the way josh(aka wakeman resident)you have to live in wakeman to be a resident it doesnt count just sleeping here!!!!! (your shift) lol

anonymous info....

Look folks, I work at Sterk's. I hear more than any of you
people could ever type on here in a day's time! I do believe
it's great to have the SGT in for breakfast as often as possible.
Reason being is, the stories he tells are quite entertaining. Some
of the stories he tells should never be told outside the homes
where they originated from. One day all that will come back to bite
the PD right in the butt. He doesn't come in to find the views of
Wakeman residents, he comes in to tell outlandish lies on Wakeman's
residents. Such as some of the stuff on this blog, Larry was in the Navy,
I've known Larry many years. I have never heard him refer to himself as a
Navy Seal. The meer thought of him being KKK is assinine!! There isn't a prejudice
bone in his body. As for him and Emmy arguing/ many of you folks out
there haven't done that in all the years of your marriages? The cruiser in
his driveway very well could have been his dinner break. All the officers get
a break don't they? Obviously, seeing as they are at Sterk's or what used to be
Mel's/Maw's Place. Or in their girlfriends driveway...DUH!
As for the names you've spit out on who you think these bloggers may be,
you're way off. Do you actually think Jim Palmer gives a dang? How the heck
did you come up with Dana Andrews? Ma Barker? You had the nerve to call that woman a
Troll? What has she done to you? Mona Finchman has enough going on in her life
to be worrying what's going on in town. I think ya'll are way off the mark!

2 Real Officer ...

Sounds like you know alot about Larry, you sure that this is not him?

I know.. (Anonymous)

A lot about a lot of people, am I all of them?
I know a lot about Josh too, I can be him! No one has
mentioned my name yet. You won't figure it out either.
I'm one of those folks that just sit and listen
to soak up as much as I can. I think I just might

about your book...

Well before your write your book, you better use spell check first. I'm Sure it will be a #1 seller in the trailer parks. the fact that you change your name when you post under other names. the LOL at the end of all your blogs gives you away. way to go smart guy.

gas guzzler... ...

to anyone who buys gas in the Norwalk area.. be consumer wise.. i see that the Norwalk gas stations have begun to gouge their customers again... for awhile there , the price of gas was pretty close to the other stations in the surrounding areas, about a 2 or 3 cent difference, but the price of gas has come down alittle in the las week or so, after spiking up. and the Norwalk dealers have left their prices high... the price of gas in Sandusky, and Lorain was $3.04 per gallon. where in Norwalk it was between $3.13 to $3.19... they are taking advantage of us because they think that we aren't paying attention,. shame on them !!!!

Trailer Parks.....

Why are you so stuck on trailer parks? I bet you weren't hugged
enough as a child were you? Does the word trailer give you a warm
fuzzy feeling inside? I bet your girlfriend lives in one, doesn't she?
I guess you found me out, I'm the only person in or around Wakeman
that knows what LOL is...what a waste!

to the house on...

I'm sorry, I only date people with class. Not TRASH!!

Trailer Parks (...

I live in a park in a Mobile Home TYVM! See how much you know.

Gas Guzzler ret...

Dude we dont give a shi* about the gas $$$ stop huffing the gas fumes.

dear josh (Anon...

you better stop writing on here mayor wolfe told tim and you to stop!!

BTW (Anonymous)

I went back at a quick glance, 5 LOL's, one was mine. Some of those were very
informative, thanks for bringing them to my attention!
The name calling, face bashing, and lie telling still doesn't
change the fact that this town is becoming over run with
people creating bad situations that can and should be controlled
by the local PD.

josh AKA TRASH ...

why are you dating anyone,YOU ARE MARRIED!!!

JOSH (Anonymous)

Blow up dolls and paid escorts with Grampa's
