Cops: Dope delivered to hospital :: Porter County :: Post-Tribune

Cops: Dope delivered to hospital :: Porter County :: Post-Tribune: "VALPARAISO -- A Porter County Jail inmate got his girlfriend to bring drugs to him while he was hospitalized, police said.

A nurse overheard their conversation and called police, leading to additional charges against Dereck Ewing, 27, of Crown Point. Four of his visitors also were arrested after the 6:20 p.m. Thursday incident at Porter hospital, according to the police report.

Ewing's girlfriend, Cassandra Taylor, 25, of rural Valparaiso, eventually told police she bought $100 worth of heroin in Chicago and brought most of it to Ewing's room at the hospital. He allegedly flushed two plastic bags worth down the toilet when police arrived, but more was discovered hidden on his visitors and in the macaroni and cheese on his meal tray. Ewing also allegedly swiped a vial of a prescription narcotic from another floor of the hospital while undergoing tests.

Ewing faces three new felony charges: possession of a controlled substance, possession of drug paraphernalia and possession of a prescribed drug without a prescription.

Taylor is charged with two felonies: dealing a controlled substance and possession of a controlled substance. Ryan Cano, 20, of Crown Point, is charged with felony possession of a controlled substance. Joseph McChristian, 46, of Valparaiso, is charged with possession of drug paraphernalia and possession of a controlled substance."

This has got to be the dumbest group of criminals ever... and what if they would have bought guns... so you can be in jail in the hospital and have unsupervised visits... Porter County needs to get it together.
