Man, woman accused of heroin trafficking

BOARDMAN

A township man and a city woman accused of heroin trafficking are expected to appear today in Mahoning County Area Court.

Kevin Washington, 25, of Wolosyn Circle, and his girlfriend, Catherine Dawson, 18, of Compton Lane, are each charged with drug trafficking. Washington also is charged with having weapons under disability.

Boardman police raided Washington’s Wolosyn Circle apartment Friday morning and recovered 26 grams of heroin, more than $2,000, a handgun and syringes, scales and other drug paraphernalia, according to reports.

Washington and Dawson were both at the apartment during the search, police said.

In 2007, Washington was charged with having weapons under disability, and the year before, he faced a charge of felony drug possession, according to online court records.

Police seized and are asking for forfeiture on two vehicles and $2,156, reports stated.

At least they caught these 2 useless idiots. Hopefully this time they will keep them caged up for a little. Pitiful DNA.

Normally I wouldn't engage in the cynicism, but in this case I'm sure the previous posters are correct in their opinions. I'm still flustered over the fact someone was actually implicated in the deaths of two people and only received six years.

The big jump in heroin use can be explained simply. Purdue Pharma changed the coating of their Oxycontin. The new pills say O.P. instead of O.C. which makes it impossible to inject them. When this happened everyone who had been shooting Oxy's for the last decade went to Heroin.

The death rate is going to climb now. Unlike with Oxycontin you have no means to measure the strength of the Heroin before injection. That and you don't know what you're getting. Leading to unscrupulous drug dealers selling fake Heroin which will lead to increased violence as well.

To make matters worse the only Methadone Clinic in the city has draconian entrance policy. Demanding you have previously checked yourself into in-patient rehab which is prohibitively expensive if you lack medical insurance which most drug users do.

These are just two self-motivated business people. When Mitt gets in these barriers to success will be removed.
