PIQUA — Charges were filed against two residents for allegedly selling heroin in Piqua.
Regina M. Burke, 45, of Piqua, and Teri L. Stambaugh, 48, of Piqua, were each charged with multiple counts of fifth-degree felony trafficking heroin. Their charges are unrelated to each other.
The charges stem from approximately five separate incidents that took place in January 2015. According to Deputy Chief Jason Preston of the Piqua Police Department, there were two reported incidents of heroin being sold at the Red Carpet Inn and three incidents on the west end of Covington Avenue, including one at the Colonial Terrace Apartments.
An arrest warrant was requested for Burke.
