Couples face heroin charges

Two couples are facing heroin charges after separate incidents, one in Brown County and the other in Hamilton County.

According to authorities, Billy Strange and Samantha Carroll have been charged with trafficking. Daniel Carter, 30, and Nicole Brewsaugh, 28, have been charged with child endangering, drug possession and possession of drug paraphernalia.

According to an Aberdeen Police Department report, the Manchester Police Department assisted the APD in November 2014 to set up a fake drug deal with a confidential informant to purchase heroin from Strange.

The purchase took place in a vehicle along U.S. 52 while the informant wore a wire, the report stated. Immediately after the purchase, officers reportedly found Strange walking westbound on U.S. 52. According to the report, officers also have a recording of Strange’s girlfriend, Carroll, allegedly offering to sell heroin and arranging the deal.

An officer with the Manchester Police Department said the couple was providing a large amount of heroin to the area, and the two departments took their time filing charges to make sure their investigation is thorough.

“We were basically getting our ducks in a row and making sure we had all the parties involved,” the officer said. “This was a pretty elaborate operation for the area. They were supplying pretty much all the southern parts of Adams and Brown counties.”

In another incident, Carter and Brewsaugh were sitting in a Hamilton County Jail last Thursday after Cincinnati police allegedly found the couple with heroin, a drug grinder and a straw in the car along with three young children, according to a press release from the MPD.

Both Carter and Brewsaugh’s bonds were set at $25,000.
