Traffic stop yields heroin arrest

Sandusky Register Staff • Mar 26, 2014 at 11:40 AM

Tanisha Giving-Alexander, 24, was charged with child endangering, heroin possession and a stop sign violation.

Sandusky police officers pulled Giving-Alexander over around 9:30 p.m. after she made a rolling stop at Stone and Monroe streets, according to a police report. Giving-Alexander was “somewhat excited and argumentative” as she denied running the sign and said she was in a hurry to leave.

A search of the vehicle yielded a small bag of alleged heroin in the driver’s side door.

Giving-Alexander told officers the heroin must have “magically” appeared.

She said she was not responsible for it “because it belonged to the car,” the report said.

Giving-Alexander was cited and taken to the Erie County jail.
