A Michigan woman who sought substance abuse treatment on her own has been approved for the drug intervention program.

Emily A. Hoffman, 24, of Granville, is charged with possession of amphetamine. If she successfully completes substance abuse, she won't have a conviction on her record.

Huron County Assistant Prosecutor Richard Woodruff said the state will release Hoffman's 1998 Oldsmobile to her. The Huron County Sheriff's Office seized the vehicle during an Oct. 2 traffic stop in Hartland Township.

Driving the vehicle at the time was David T. Hargitt, 22, also of Granville, Mich. He was charged with speeding and possession of marijuana.

"There were down here in Ohio partying at a campground and then on their way to Cedar Point," Detective Sgt. Josh Querin said after the stop.

Deputy Shannon Lyons made the speeding-related traffic stop on Greenwich Milan Townline Road. Woodruff said deputies found 14 amphetamine pills in Hoffman's purse during a consent search and the Ohio Bureau of Criminal Investigation later confirmed what the drugs were.

"Brownies, containing hashish, were also found in the vehicle," Querin said after the stop.

Hoffman must reimburse the sheriff's office $35 to cover the cost of drug testing. She is subject to random drug screens during her two years of basic probation. The court found Hoffman had no prior criminal record and ordered her to be supervised at a high level. Her supervision will be transferred to Michigan.
