Seven people were indicted on drug trafficking offenses by a Wood County grand jury on earlier this month.
Christa Thompson, 23, Bowling Green, was indicted on three counts of trafficking in heroin after incidents in April in the 400 block of South Enterprise Street. She reportedly sold the drugs out of her apartment on three separate occasions.
Gretchen Betz, 34, Ellwood City, Penn., and Javon Washington, 30, Beaver Falls, Penn., were indicted on charges of trafficking in heroin and possession of heroin after nearly 23 grams of heroin were found after an investigation in Lake Township on Aug. 21.
According to the criminal complaint, the heroin was discovered to have been placed in a condom "which was inside (Betz), as found through police investigation."
Officers were alerted to the drugs via a canine unit. Washington was driving the vehicle.
Luciana Loyd, 38, Detroit, and Vincent Barksdale, 22, Radcliff, Ky., were indicted on charges of possessing criminal tools, aggravated trafficking and aggravated possession of drugs after an Aug. 8 incident on Interstate 75 in Perrysburg. Found in their possession were a number of Oxycodone pills.
Nathaniel Putman, 29, Detroit, was indicted on charges of aggravated trafficking, aggravated possession of drugs, and possession of heroin following an incident on Aug. 8 on I-75 south.
He was found to have in his possession 484 Oxycodone pills, as well as six grams of heroin.
Jason Young, 29, Ferndale, Mich., was indicted on one count of aggravated trafficking after he was reportedly found to have 110 Oxycodone pills hidden in his vehicle following a traffic stop in Lake Township on June 21.
Also indicted were:
• Timothy Kazmaier, 24, Perrysburg, on three counts of assault. The charges stem from a June 6 incident in the 200 block of Louisiana Avenue, in which Kazmaier reportedly struck two Perrysburg Police officers and bit a third. The officer who was bitten was taken to St. Luke's Hospital, Maumee, for treatment. The other two officers were reportedly hit in the face by Kazmaier.
• Adam Wlodarczyk, 36, North York, Ontario, Canada, and Adam Paczkowski, 40, Chicago, on charges of burglary, receiving stolen property, and possessing criminal tools. Both men were arrested following a July 24 incident in the 10000 block of Fremont Pike, Perrysburg, involving property taken from Best Buy, Petsmart, and Bed Bath and Beyond valued at between $1,000 and $7,500.
