A Tiffin woman who was arrested following a drug-related search warrant at her Willow Creek apartment in April was sentenced to 36 months in prison Tuesday.
Chelsa M. Chaney, 23, was given the sentence by Seneca County Common Pleas Court Judge Steve Shuff for convictions that included five counts of trafficking in heroin, a fourth-degree felony; and one count each of endangering children, a first-degree misdemeanor; possession of criminal tools, a fifth-degree felony; and aggravated possession of drugs, also a fifth-degree felony. She had pleaded guilty to the charges last month.
During the execution of the search warrant at Chaney's Willow Creek apartment, law enforcement found suspected heroin, hypodermic needles, drug paraphernalia, prescription medication, criminal tools and evidence of drug trafficking.
Three young children were removed from the residence by Children's Services and released to a relative following the search.
Another resident of the apartment, Brady Cornett, 23, was sentenced to 23 months in prison last month after he pleaded guilty to one count each of trafficking in heroin, a fourth-degree felony; child endangerment, a first-degree misdemeanor; possession of criminal tools, a fifth-degree felony; and aggravated possession of drugs, a fifth-degree felony.
Shuff also suspended Chaney's driver's license Tuesday for six months and ordered her to pay restitution in the amount of $460 to the Seneca County Drug Task Force METRICH Enforcement Unit.
