Huron County deputies turned up two wanted Norwalk women and 17 balloons of heroin Monday at the intersection of Ohio 224 and Ohio 13 during a pre-planned traffic stop.

Carla Reed, 29, and Amy Lykins, 29, were charged with possession of heroin and violation of probation. Lykins was also charged with tampering with evidence.

At about 9 p.m. deputies assisted by Monroeville police pulled over a vehicle they’d been following for a long time.

“We’d been investigating them for trafficking for quite a while,” Huron County sheriff’s Det. Bill Duncan said. “We suspected they’d been bringing heroin up from Columbus.”

When deputies walked up they noticed something was wrong with Lykins’ speech. Soon after she spit out 16 balloons of heroin — another was found in the passenger’s seat. Deputies also discovered several syringes and burnt spoons in the car along with Hydrocodone and Percocet pills.

Duncan said Lykins was on probation for a heroin-related offense at the time of the stop.

He said she was one of 10 inmates in the Huron County jail when inmate Jesika Skelton, 20, overdosed on prescription pills in March.

Lykins was being held at the Huron County Jail Tuesday on $10,000 bond while Reed’s bond was set at $5,000.

 And you wonder why they call it dope?  Here are two wastes of skin who are Prime examples.  I hope they get at least 40 years each the scumbags!

Would it not be better to rehabilitate them?  Lock up the violent and sex offenders but help the drug abusers get off the stuff and try to become contributing members of society.  We can't put everyone in jail.  It costs too much.

Not everyone can be rehabiltated. AND, not everyone wants to be. If you put them in prison for a couple of years, that should get them off the stuff. Then when they come out, if they WANT to stay clean they will. As long as you keep them out of jail, they will continue to recruit new people to their habit.
