A Scioto County woman will spend nine years in prison for possessing and trafficking heroin in Chesapeake.
Chelsey Barry, 19, was found guilty Tuesday in Common Pleas Court of possession of heroin, trafficking heroin, conspiracy to traffic heroin and tampering with evidence.
Investigators said Barry was stopped by an officer in February on U.S. 23, near Houston Hollow Road. Troopers said they could smell marijuana on Barry and three other men inside the car.
Police questioned Barry and she pulled out 56 grams of heroin from her purse she had brought back from Detriot. Barry had told police that one of the men inside the car gave her the drugs to bring into Ohio.
Barry will serve her sentence at the Ohio Reformatory for Women in Marysville.
