Mom found with drugs

Campbell woman faces charge of child endangering

CAMPBELL — A Campbell woman is in the Mahoning County jail after police said her child told them she was “high” — which caused him to leave the residence.

Nicole Nagy, 35, is scheduled for a pretrial hearing in Campbell Municipal Court on Friday, court records show.

She is facing charges of possession of crack cocaine, possession of drug paraphernalia and child endangerment.

According to a police report, a citizen flagged down an officer while on patrol after 9:30 p.m. Wednesday, bringing a child to the officer.

The child, 11, wearing pajamas but no socks or shoes, told the officer his mother was “high” and yelled at him as she stumbled around the house on Murray Avenue.

The child told the officer he called his father, and then got into the police car and guided the officer to the house.

Another officer arrived and they noted the door was unlocked to Nagy’s home.

After announcing his presence with no response, an officer entered the house. He eventually found Nagy in a bedroom unresponsive. Once she woke up, Nagy told officers she found a pipe and didn’t know from where the rock-like substance, later determined to be crack cocaine, came from.

The child’s father arrived to take him, showing officers a video the child sent of Nagy “slumped over a bicycle” in the house. The father also said the couple has an ongoing child custody case.
