A drug bust on Hancock Street was a family affair, according to a police report.
A Sandusky Police officer said he observed at least one of three family members inside a car attempt to purchase crack Wednesday night.
At about 9:01 p.m. the officer saw the vehicle stop, a person walk up to the driver's side door and hand something to the driver, according to the police report.
Police talked to the occupants and asked them to get out of the vehicle. In the back seat a crack pipe was found as well as some crack cocaine, the report said. One passenger, Renee A. Hartley, 41, of Akron, told police there was more crack in her underwear that belonged to another passenger.
Once on station a dispatcher located the crack in a lip balm tube inside Hartley's underwear, the report said. Hartley was charged with possession of crack cocaine, tampering with evidence, loitering in a drug area and possession of drug paraphernalia.
Also charged were passenger Mark A. Hartley Sr., 54, of Akron, for possession of crack cocaine and loitering in a drug area and served with warrants, and driver Mark A. Hartley Jr., 29, 4200 block of Venice Road, who was charged with complicity to possession of crack cocaine and loitering in a drug area and cited for driving under suspension.
