A Norwalk woman allegedly huffing duster in a superstore bathroom was arrested Thursday, according to a police report.

Police later arrested Miranda Fligor, 28, on two bench warrants for abusing harmful intoxicants, after prosecutors decided to charge her for the Aug. 9 incident, Norwalk police Capt. Dave Smith said. A Walmart employee called police after hearing the sound of compressed air being released in a bathroom stall at about 8 p.m. The employee also saw a can of duster fall to the floor, Smith said.

When Norwalk police arrived, Fligor was still in the bathroom. An officer forced open the stall door to see a fully clothed Fligor sitting on the toilet with a can of duster in her hand, a Norwalk police report said.

She simply stared at the officer with a “dumbfounded look and put her head in her hands,” the report said.

When officers spoke to Fligor, she also admitted to huffing duster in the bathroom at Rite Aid before going to Walmart that day, the report said.

She had several cans of duster in her possession, but it was unclear if she had purchased the items before going into the restroom. Fligor was taken to Fisher Titus Medical Center for treatment that evening.

After reviewing the case, the law director decided to charge her with two counts of abusing harmful intoxicants, triggering the warrants that led to her arrest Thursday.

Yuck...I dread blowing out the computers for even a bit of the bitterant getting in my nose or mouth. Huffing is a serious problem, though, and is very damaging to the body. I hope this woman gets help in overcoming this.


she just got busted in may in norwallk at a mickymart for shooting up heroin.

Stop It

She is screaming for help. Can't anyone see?

She is doing these things in public places instead of setting herself on fire in a secluded area.


She might be screaming for help, but she has to do it herself. Unless she is high all the time, she must have some lucid moments. THAT'S when she needs to seek help. Never having started taking drugs or "huffing" I really don't know how it works, but if you take it the first time, knowing the problems it causes, then how can I feel sorry for you?

Amen! I feel the same way about domestic violence, motorcycle accidents and AIDS. Glad to see someone else advocates for personal responsibility. You get what you deserve. Am I right?


I agree too. At one time, you make a CHOICE to start smoking weed, heroin, huffing, whatever, it is a CHOICE. You do it to yourself. You can also CHOOSE TO STOP. I have no sympathy for you when you get caught. She was huffing in a bathroom. That is pretty much rock bottom, not looking for help, just rock bottom. Low class if you ask me. Not only was she sitting on the porcelain god huffing, she probably didn't pay for it either. So she is a shoplifter too. No sympathy here. It is a CHOICE people. Just say NO.


PILLS ----- I destroy homes, tear families apart, take your children, and that's just the start. I'm more costly than diamonds, more costly than gold, the sorrow I bring is a sight to behold, and if u need me, remember I'm easily found. I live all around you, in schools and in town. I live with the rich, I live with the poor, I live down the street, and maybe next door. My power is awesome; try me.................. you'll see, but if you do, you may never break free. Just try me once and I might let you go, but try me twice, and I'll own your soul. When I possess you, you'll steal and you'll lie. You do what you have to just to get high. The crimes you'll commit, for my narcotic charms will be worth the pleasure you'll feel in your arms. You'll lie to your mother; you'll steal from your dad When you see their tears, you should feel sad. But you'll forget your morals and how you were raised, I'll be your conscience, I'll teach you my ways. I take kids from parents, and parents from kids, I turn people from God, and separate from friends. I'll take everything from you, your looks and your pride, I'll be with you always, right by your side. You'll give up everything your family, your home, your friends, your money, then you'll be alone. I'll take and take, till you have nothing more to give. When I'm finished with you you'll be lucky to live. If you try me be warned this is no game. If given the chance, I'll drive you insane. I'll ravish your body; I'll control your mind. I'll own you completely; your soul will be mine. The nightmares I'll give you while lying in bed, the voices you'll hear from inside your head, the sweats, the shakes, the visions you'll see; I want you to know, these are all gifts from me, But then it's too late, and you'll know in your heart, that you are mine, and we shall not part. You'll regret that you tried me, they always do, but you came to me, not I to you. You knew this would happen. Many times you were told, but you challenged my power, and chose to be bold. You could have said no, and just walked away, If you could live that day over, now what would you say? I'll be your master; you will be my slave, I'll even go with you, when you go to your grave. Now that you have met me , what will you do? Will you try me or not? Its all up to you. I can bring you more misery than words can tell. Come take my hand, let me lead you to hell... Repost this and you could save a pill taker and his or her life.


Great poem, well said!

Sweet Lips, would you mind if I shared your words on the Sandusky Crime Prevention Council's facebook page?


@Stop it, really it was necessary to bring that up? You realize some people are not able to be helped, you think no one has tried to help these people! You have absolutely no right to say anything concerning that woman! And if you are so concerned why don't you try to help.


I don't know what will help that family. The last name is well know to PD.
