Cries for help lead to arrest in Lorain

LORAIN — Police responding to a welfare check for a woman screaming for help ended up arresting her after they said they found drugs inside a duplex.

At 4:50 a.m. Friday, police were dispatched to the 1000 block of West 23rd Street after a caller stated that a “loud banging could be heard from inside” the residence.

When officers arrived, Nancy Fleisig, 58, of 5000 W. Erie Ave., Lorain, invited officers into the residence; however, they observed her to be confused and bewildered.

“Nancy stated that she had no idea where she was and could not find her way out of the residence,” the report stated.

During the conversation with Fleisig, she informed officers that she was “looking for a trailer park upstairs.”

Officers searched the home and observed it to be barren with the exception of a few items in the kitchen, inflatable mattresses in both of the bedrooms and random pieces of clothing.

Upon further investigation, officers located a purse that contained a small glass pipe with black marks throughout. A field test determined that it tested positive for the presence of cocaine.

A digital scale inside the kitchen was also covered in white powder that tested positive for cocaine as well.

Officers contacted Fleisig’s mother, who stated her daughter “has a drug problem and has not been seen in several days.”

Fleisig has a felony conviction of possession of cocaine dating back to October 2004. She was charged with possession of cocaine and possession of drug paraphernalia and transported to Lorain City Jail.

    Hey buddy, no means no. Leave me alone means just that. And yes you better keep your hands to yourself. He’s definitely starting to head down the wrong path already.

    Why was he only charged with aggravated burglary?

    “The assault continued into the bedroom where he threatened to throw a lamp at her”.

    I’m no policeman but wouldn’t it also be breaking & entering along with assault if not aggravated assault also? And how about criminal damage? To keep it real though these are probably the charges that it will be reduced to in order to get him to plea.

      What does your comment have to do with a lady who was “looking for a trailer park upstairs?”

      Just wondered. No harm. I did not even see the other story.

        No harm but foul was meant.

      I’m sorry to hear this is your mother. I applaud you for not following her example. I hope she can get help…

      On the bright side, she must have passed on some superior genes to you.

      If she’s managed to survived to 58 living the life, you’ll probably hit 100 without a hiccup.
