Numerous Arrests Made After Crack Houses Raided

OCPS have raided 2 Chapel street residences in an effort to reduce the number of rock star homes in the area.
Police acting on a tip, investigated these places for approximately 3 months before taking actions.
Charged are: 31-year-old Amey Miller, 43-year-old Ron Green, 40-year-old Amanda Griffin, 39-year-old Kurt Sutherland, 36-year-old Anna Keith, 61-year-old Dianne Watling, 46-year-old Patti Shillolo, 32-year-old Jody King, 45-year-old Doreen Burke, 31-year-old Christina Morrison, 21-year-old Matthew Edwards, 23-year-old Phillip McKay, Shari Jones, Adam Halashewski, and 49-year-old Norman Bushfield.
Numerous drug charges were laid, as well, charges for posession of stolen property.
One of the properties was used as a holding place for stolen goods.
Later the same day, warrants were excercised at 5 Broadway street, resulting in the arrests of a group of teens. Police left these people handcuffed on the side of the street while searching the properties with police dogs.
The primary target of these investigations seems to be the growing pill trade, and the crystal meth trade.
Perhaps the police should spend some time investigating the doctors who routinely sell their prescription granting rights to the highest bidder.
Oxycontin comes direct from the pharmacist. They are prescribed by doctors for everything.
Our medical community is at the heart of this problem. The police should investigate these doctors. Instead, they will investigate the users…cuz the doctors have too much money and power to piss off.

    Thank you.
    Its nice to see someone writing the truth around here. My father is a drug user and probably an affiliate of the above mentioned places. Him, my little brother and many others are dependant on the “perks”. They buy, sell. Its disgusting. They have turned my brother into an unbarable monster. Recently, he took up needels (which he claims was a one time thing) and now he is doing B and E’s. I have heard there is now a warrent out for his arrest. I Agree that dr.s like Dr. Perk (Kirk out of ingersoll) needs to be stopped.

    Hey Bender,
    Why don’t you start by spelling Independent the right way.
    Dr.’s I know deserve our respect for putting up with jerked off addicts that just can’t kick their perc, oxy-etc. habits, and kick and scream for a prescription they don’t deserve. Dr.’s wean these people properly off the medication, but it is the patient who chooses to exceed doses, crying for more, buying it, etc.

    If the pill problem is the main reason these kids are running around stealing anything that is not tied down then “who is selling it to them”, it must come from a doctor, so perhaps an inventory on the patient medication be reviewed periodically to ensure the prescription is not being sold? Also to the pawn shops and dealers that accept property for cash then act like they are not part of the problem needs to be evaluated. If you buy 3 playstations off the same kid in 1 weeks time, think about..

    This information is very wrong! I was one of them named and it’s wrong, very wrong. Get the information correct before you post something.. Especially since these incidences were at different places than chapel St and different times and charges. This is slanderous!
