Did anyone notice that it took the Scioto Co Sheriff's office to arrest Penny. Almost everyone in Greenup knows she deals here too but Keith Cooper couldn't seem to get the job done. Notice he never busts any of the major drug dealers. Arrests will pick up the closer he gets to reelection but in between times, major drug arrests are almost non existant.

WHEELERSBURG, Ohio (WSAZ)-- A woman is behind bars after a major drug bust at a novelty gift shop in Wheelersburg, Ohio.

The Scioto County Sheriff says Dark Wings Novelties Gift Shop in the Mid Town Mall in Wheelersburg was raided Thursday afternoon.

During the execution of the search warrant, detectives found 5,000 packages of suspected bath salts and suspected synthetic marijuana, 253 Oxycodone pills, 76 Xanax pills, 84 Klonopin pills and $34,000 cash.

The owner of Dark Wings, 54-year-old Yvonda G. Nichols, of Greenup, Ky., was arrested for felony possession of drugs.

She was arraigned Friday morning and a $50,000 bond was set.

According to Sheriff Marty Donini, detectives from the Sheriff's Office and Portsmouth Police Department initiated an investigation into Dark Wings and found that the business was selling products that contained substances that had a similar chemical structure to current controlled substances in the State of Ohio for human consumption.

This is an ongoing investigation and more arrests could be made.

The case against Yvonne Nichols will be forwarded to the Scioto County Prosecutor's Office to be presented to a Scioto County Grand Jury.

She doesn't deal drugs here in KY. I've tried to buy some off of her thinking she may have brought some from Dark Wings home. She doesn't.

That's right. Get your dealers straight. It's Tim that deals on this side of the river.

Hell I bet well over half of law inforcement are taking some kind of drug on a daily basis. Just because its prescribed doesn't make them any better.
They use force to make you do what the deciders have decided you must do!!! RATM

No it doesn't make them better, but it makes them LEGAL! What part of legal dont you understand.

I know most of our local deputies. And if they are on pain meds they must be taking them as prescribed. They work daily, they have money to feed and cloth their children and they aren't strong arming old women for their purses.

That's the difference between illegal drug use and legal drug use. If you take it as perscribed you dont turn into a deadbeat drain on society.

It's hard to arrest someone that isn't in your jurisdiction. Dark wings is located in wheelersburg, not greenup! However, if you read the article you put in your post, you would have seen that!

Yeah so they have a "LEGAL BUZZ" .
A buzz is a buzz by any name!
As far as strongarming old ladies, hell yeah arrest them thugs.
Thats a legit crime.
Sitting home getting high is ones personal buisness.
I don't like religion but I'm not going to outlaw you participating in it at your own home. Whatever "crutch" one needs in this world to cope so be it.
Everyone needs something!
Closing the clinics I think needed to be done, but let me tell you reducing the supply is not going to deter anyone getting what they want. Bet no one is doing without just because of that.
A druggie will find a way regardless.
Now what? Heroin? More costly, probably more turning to crime to get it. Yeah when one commits a crime against another arrest them!
Everyone don't like alcohol. But it gives you a buzz in the evening doesn't it POPO! People have indulged in drugs for centuries if one gets stupid and harms another punish them! But believe it or not alot of people, so called "legal" or not function on a daily basis and hold good jobs even though they like a toke or a drink or whatever at night to relax. Whats the crime in that? No harm done to another! Just because a person needs a crutch doesn't make them criminal or useless. Some have no means of getting their crutch from Drs. DOESN"T MAKE THEM CRIMINALS!. Do I need to list a bunch of the crutchs people use? Sex,religion,prestige from others,alcohol,ciggerettes,mat erial goods,sports,shopping,Grandkid s love,Prescription pills,millions of others,SNICKERS! Gonna outlaw that next cause its bad for me? Quit telling me what I can do to my own body! Till I strongarm or rob and such I've done nothing to you. Till I step on your toes leave me and mine alone! Yeah POPO look up my IP adress I dont care I'm no criminal, just dont like alcohol anymore, was a hell of alot more danger to society then. 3 dui's out of 15-20 yrs drinking and driving. drove thousands of times drunk back in the day. Talk at you tommorrow, its saturday night and I don't have to go to my 22yr Union job tommorrow so Ima get a BUZZ!!!
P.S. What U said above, No thats not the diference between legal and illegal drug use. Thats the difference in peoples morals!

I read the article. And I know where Dark Wings is at, it's right beside the wall paper place. The Sheriff could have arrested her on this side of the river. It's not like she's been hiding what she does. He just doesn't want to get involved until it's time for the next election!

Using drugs and strongarming old women are two different things. Strongarming women is due to lack of morals! Poor raising. I bet you look for it somewhere in the world (several places actually) Police have been documented and CONVICTED of Strongarming while on duty. I bet even Priests. Everything's been done in this world by now. Yes majority of hardcore druggies have no morals. Wasn't it in the twentys when proabition was inacted. Wonder why? Maybe the majority of drunks let their morals slide. But that was overuled wasn't it? In other words at the end of it in the twentys didn't the courts say "Let people have the right to a buzz". So fight your battle where the troubled ones are. Get your sights right. Are you bitchin' about people taking drugs or people strongarming? I believe the strongarmers are the trouble. Now HMMMMM HMMMMM relax...

yeah I agree he could have arrested her on the ky side, but only with probable cause. I mean I don't know this chick or anything, but everyone has rights. He may have known that she was doing illegal things, but he would have to get a search warrant and everything to search her and to arrest her.
If that was the case a lot of people could be arrested...just saying. But she's locked up now.

Dude, I can tell from reading your posts, you're not from around here. Strong arming, home invasions, they are all a by product of illegal prescription drug use around here. It's an epidemic.

I dont have a problem with someone wanting to get a "buzz". If you want to grow and smoke a little weed at home, I dont have a problem with that. To me it's like alcohol, stay off the roads until your reflexes are back to normal and have at it. But prescription drugs are an entirely different matter. Prescription drugs use causes people to loose their jobs. Then they can't afford to buy their drug of choice, so they steal them from their family, break into peoples house to steal stuff to pawn, hell, they are even cutting telephone wires off the poles to sell the copper in them to get their next "buzz". There is a major problem in this county when not one family in the county doesn't have someone in it affected by prescription drug abuse.

You can talk about your right to a "buzz" all you want but when your need for a buzz has you our searching for an easy mark to rob, then it becomes my business.
