MARIETTA, Ohio (WTAP) - Two Marietta residents face heroin charges and other charges after police found them with heroin in a home with a toddler inside.
At 1:16 P.M. on April 12, Marietta Police officers executed a search warrant for drugs at 106 Riley Drive, Apt. 8, the home of Jolanda Nicole Barber (AKA Jolinda), 29.
A man known to be staying at the home, Peter Grant Hafner, 28, was the target of the search warrant.
Inside the home, officers found a toddler in a playpen in the front room, and found Barber and Hafner together in a bed in a back room of the home.
Next to the bed, officers found .26 grams of chopped white powder, suspected to be heroin, on a mirror, and found numerous small baggies of drug residue scattered throughout the room.
Officers also found razor blades, burnt foil and mirrors and straws with drug residue in the home.
Children Services responded to care for the toddler, who was later taken from the scene by family members.
Hafner was arrested and charged with felony trafficking in heroin in an amount less than 1 (one) gram within the vicinity of a juvenile and within 1000 feet of a school.
Hafner also had an outstanding arrest warrant for four counts of Aggravated Menacing, from a crime on March 25, 2018, at the same home.
In that incident, Hafter had allegedly brandished a kitchen knife and threatened four people, including a juvenile, then left the home before officers arrived.
Barber was arrested and charged with felony trafficking in heroin in an amount less than 1 (one) gram within the vicinity of a juvenile and within 1000 feet of a school, felony permitting drug abuse, and misdemeanor endangering the welfare of a child.
Washington County Sheriff’s Office provided a deputy and K9 to assist with the initial execution of the warrant.
