A 23-year-old Ohio woman was taken in police custody on Jan. 2 after authorities accused her of attempting to hide drug paraphernalia in a vehicle, according to news sources. The incident occurred at approximately 9 p.m. in the parking lot of a fast food restaurant on North Gettysburg Avenue in Dayton.

The officers reported that when they approached the vehicle, the driver agreed to a vehicle search. Officers then reportedly observed the accused woman attempt to hide drug paraphernalia between the seat.
On Oct. 15, a 55-year-old woman allegedly high on heroin struck a female pedestrian and two utility poles. According to local police, the woman somehow lost control of her vehicle while she was driving on Beechmont Avenue in the vicinity of the Five Mile Road intersection. Her car then collided with a utility pole and launched into the air, striking a second pole and eventually a 49-year-old woman. The pedestrian was taken to the hospital with significant injuries, and the motorist was treated for non-critical injuries, according to reports.
