Sandusky police said Wilson, 25, most recently of Fulton Street, has still not provided any information on the gunman in the shooting, who is still missing.

She did, however, say — according to police — that the incident was a "setup." Police said she told them she arranged a drug deal with Bartt Carruthers, her step-father, with the intent to rob him.

Carruthers, 49, was shot Wednesday night three times at a car wash in the 500 block of Perkins Avenue. He drove to a counseling center several blocks away and stumbled into the building where staff called 911. He is recovering at Mercy St. Vincent Medical Center in Toledo.

Police said the gunman, whose identity has not yet been released, should still be considered dangerous, but they believe the violence to be isolated to the botched robbery.

Wilson is held on $51,351 bond on the new charge and two unrelated warrants served on her Wednesday night.

I understand from a law enforcement friend that heroin is making a new home here in Sandusky. This is not funny stuff because those drugs bring all kinds of crime when these people need a fix! A sad situation for our area and the innocent law abiding population. KEEP YOUR GUN CLOSE!

he said she said

No she's not the godess that some make think she is but neither are any of us. She's not ugly, just 'specially different'


She isn't going to talk as long as the guy doing the shooting has a gun. She may be dumb, but she isn't stupid....or vice versa. Bet the shooter sends someone to bail her out. She hasn't snitched. Will count for something with him.

Just another example of stuck on stupid!!!!!!


Women are powerful people when it comes to getting a man to do something for them. They know just where to go and what to do to get a guy to do her will.


It's true, sorry guys.


I'm a woman and I have to agree with you 100%. It however, does go both ways.
