    Sadly there are at least fifty people who are waiting to step up and take their place.

      AND arresting the seller does nothing to deter the user from buying from someone else.

    Way to go Police from Lorain, Elyria, the Lorain County Drug Task Force and West Shore Enforcement ….job well done!!!!!!

  • Arietta Sullivan

    it’s a good story to read.

  • Patty Siniard Doman

    Peddlers of poison ! Keep busting them ,heroin must be stopped !

    • Clair S. Voyant

      And then what about the addicts.. Read up on opiate withdraw would you!

  • stop ur whining part deux

    The only downside is that this headline is appearing way too often. Seems for every one they arrest three more take it’s place.

  • Mark B

    They might want to take a look in the 200 block of lake ave, there are lots of 5 minute friends in and out of that area . If a regular person can see this certainly a trained police officer should be able to take notice .

    • taxpayer89

      Everyone thinks cops can just arrest someone out of the blue. There are rules they need to follow for proof and investigations take time. I love how people think the police don’t do enough. Maybe those that complain the cops don’t arrest enough people or do their jobs completely should take a walk in their shoes and see what they go through.

      • Reagan

        taxpayer I agree. Its not against the law to have five minute visitors. Takes time to build a case. Like it or not even drug dealers have constitutional rights.

  • tomfeher

    Good job all involved, but why aren’t these POS charged with murder and attempted murder?

    • Triston Henderson

      Because nobody forces a junkie to put poison in their bodies… #personal responsibility

      • golfingirl

        And nobody forces someone to put frozen food in their pockets at Giant Eagle.

        Thought I recognized your name.

        • Triston Henderson

          There is more than one Triston Henderson in Lorain County,three that I know of, and I’ve never been in any trouble. Get your facts straight before you try and talk crazy.

          • golfingirl

            So….are you, or are you not Triston K. Henderson?

            The other one is over 60yo…..I doubt he would be posting on “World Star Hip Hop.”

            Sounds more like somewhere a 20 something would be posting, not to mention the F-word being used in your avatar.

          • Triston Henderson

            Sorry it took me so long to respond and no im not Triston K. My middle name is Wayne and im 24. So I would appreciate it if you didn’t try and throw me under the bus for what some person who shares my name supposedly did. Where im from (Texas) the people don’t seem to be as simple as you… Have a wonderful day:)

            Lololol…thanks she needed that!!

  • SpaceTech

    Execute drug dealers after convictions they are nothing but a disease of man and should be dealt with very harshly and with zero compassion.

    • Mark B

      Maybe we should arrest and jail everyone who sells Alcohol , it a poison just the same , just a slower death.

      • Clair S. Voyant

        And much more expensive!

      • stina

        Money is money, whether its dirty or clean. Drugs are drugs no matter the extent. He is not a bad guy because he is being accused of this. They is no different from someone trying to make money. #freethem

    • Chan

      And what do you suggest we do with the heroin users since typically they are the ones breaking in homes, cars, stealing from families? It’s easy to point the finger from the one making the money, but I guarantee that if someone recreational drug use could be taxed it would be legal.

  • Patty Roysden Hart

    Thats GREAT!!!! Lots more to go…we MUST get this deadly drug off the streets

  • golfingirl

    These sorry excuses for human beings have criminal records a mile long. George is even a sexual offender.

    So, how many more chances are they “owed” by society?

    Oh, and spare me the “they are great fathers, mothers, sister, brothers” garbage. They are the reason Lorain and Elyria is what it has become.

    Over two pounds of Heroin…has to be worth at least $100,000…..depending on how many times it was cut.

    I say it is time to FINALLY hold them accountable. Our patience has run out on this kind of trash.

    Send them all to the “ugly” house.

    • brenda

      “YOUR” patience has run out!! You cannot speak for everyone. Yes there is a problem and it should be dealt with accordingly. People that sell drugs do not put guns to your head and make people do drugs. All in all it’s wrong, but to call names the way you do, bet you wouldn’t say it to their face…..you are insignificant! Believe that!

      • stina

        I agree with you :-) its all for the money. They say too many people are dying from this, ok well at least they died doing what they love.

    • brenda

      Lorain and Elyria are and have been the same for as long as I can remember…..so try something different.

  • Kim

    Kudos to the police!
    I hope they make an example of these thugs.
    Too much of this crap going on, makes me sick!

  • Frank Siegfried

    If you send them to prison, they won’t learn nothing. Smash their hands with a hammer and break their knees. Then every time they take a step or wipe their butt, they will remember.

  • Phil Blank

    News conference at 11am today.

  • John Demirjian

    goddamn oxygen thieves and their white associate bringing drugs into the county. Let’s hope that justice is done. I have no sympathy for drug dealers.

  • GreatRedeemer

    Good job.

  • Clair S. Voyant

    And what are they doing for the addicts? You must stop it’s use. NOT
    it’s sale. Physicians and gov’t created this whole problem! They need to use their head and provide support for the ADDICTS if they want to save these people! Idiots!

    • brenda

      OMG!!! Someone finally understands!! No one can make you smoke crack or shoot heroin!! These people need help just as a alcoholic would.

      • Clair S. Voyant

        THANK YOU BRENDA! You would think it’s rocket science or something! The money spent setting these guys up could have went a long way for recovery initiatives!

    • stina

      True on that one. The government brought drugs into this country.

  • stina

    I dont care. When the economy is this bad, you gotta do something to feed your children. Consumers know the consequence of using but still they use. Where do you think drugs initially came from? How about you ask people who ha.ve served in the army. They got the answer for you
