Three rural Norwalk individuals were arrested Wednesday morning on drug-related charges.

The Huron County drug task force, which consisted of deputies from the Huron County Sheriff's Office and a Monroeville police department officer, used a search warrant at 1220 E. Ohio 61.

"As a result of the execution of this search warrant, three individuals were arrested," Chief Deputy Ted Patrick said.

Arrested were Thomas A. Vermillion, 24, on possession of oxycodone, a fifth-degree felony; Felicia Eldridge, 20, also on possession of oxycodone; and Darrell Keegan, 23, on charges of possession of oxycodone, trafficking in oxycodone and tampering with evidence. All three suspects live at the Ohio 61 residence.

Trafficking in oxycodone is a fifth-degree felony, while tampering with evidence is a third-degree felony.

Keegan's tampering with evidence charge stems from him allegedly trying to destroy evidence, Detective Sgt. Josh Querin said.

The arrests took place at 7:15 a.m.

"Eldridge could also face a trafficking charge," Patrick added. "That information has been forwarded to the prosecutor's office for consideration."

The investigation was conducted by Querin, Deputy Troy Kimball, who is also a member of the Monroeville police department, and sheriff's Detective Eric Bardar.

"Keegan was a significant supplier of prescription pills in this area," Querin said. "It's good to get him off the street. We will continue to step up the effort to stop people from abusing and selling drugs in Huron County."

Felicia is old enough to make decisions between right and wrong. Too bad she made some so early as an adult that she may regret for the rest of her life.

Way to go drug task force! Now to get the judge to sentence them to prison and not vacation rehab.

Prison is not the answer for addiction .

In fact they are working to change the penalties on drug offenses ,these our kids caught up in the oxy generation ,thanks to the doctors .

I knew it was the doctors fault.Those a**holes always shove drugs down our throats.

rickross2

They absolutely do. I know from personal experience, I have refused them over and over because I'm smarter than most people.....but that is their answer and it's bull crap. Don't speak about what you don't know please, the doctors are the issue!

Actually, Prison is exactly what someone who REFUSES to quit on their own needs. It's forced sobriety, if they go back to it after 18-24 months of sobriety, they're goners!

Sorry to disappoint you , but unless they have previous felony convictions, you do not get prison time for a felony 5 in the great state of Ohio..

Looks like at least one of them will be going to prison. And I am sure his friends will roll on him so they get vacation rehab!

I'm pretty sure this is not Darrell's first offense. He should be going away for a little while. And it's time the other two learn a lesson as well. Whether it be jail time or scared strait by seeing what happens to Darrell... Or what SHOULD happen to him. Lol

This is what happens when you talk about drugs and post pictures of your "money" on social media.

These kids were always losers.

Checked out her facebook. She had a child in this home, too. How sad is that?

not that anything they were doing is okay... but she does not have a child.

Where would these kids have gotten oxy? I mean that IS a prescription drug...

Gdusty86

Any doctor will prescribe you oxy for any little pain these days ,that's a huge part of the problem.

ladydye_5

I wonder where these doctors are. I have actual medical conditions and can not get medications that help. Between the government and the insurance companies....everyone tells you, you cannot have them. I think these pill heads get them from other pill heads and not doctors.

hankster

Bullc**p you are making excuses.Not "any doctor" will prescribe you oxy.It's a chicken*** excuse and you know it.

rickross2

Oxycodone is Percocet. "Oxy's" I believe are OxyContin......Big difference. Percocets are offered to me by every doctor I see. It's a absolute joke. They don't fix problems, they mask them over with drugs. Where do you think all these people get these pills? Wal-Mart? Wake up dude, doctors are the only ones who can dish them out. If they only gave what people really needed, there wouldn't be extras.

oxycontin is brand name oxycodone in a bigger dose with no tylenol in a time release formula. oxycontin cannot be crushed and sniffed so its got the pillheads in a twist. if a person wants to abuse it they break or cut it up to expose as much surface area of the pill as possible for a faster high, although breaking the pill just once makes it no longer time release. for some reason the pillheads think everything has to go up their nose..

Let's hope they get some help ,addiction is the problem .

Sounds to me like he was selling them, not using them. Perhaps, getting a job is what they need. They must of been watching him for awhile to be making that statement.

speak real

they were defiently using those drugs, you can't tell? and yes posting pill pictures and your money all over social media isn't gonna get you caught... they are junkies.

I can't tell by looking at the pictures on here. I see 3 people who were probably sleeping when they were rudely awaken by the cops at 7:15 haha I always heard when it comes to selling dope, booze, or whatever if you are doing the product, you won't make any money.
