Naperville High School Student Charged with Dealing Heroin
Naperville police said they arrested Brittany K. Hursh, 17, after finding packets and drug paraphernalia that tested positive for heroin. Police made other heroin-related arrests earlier this week.
A Naperville High School student was charged Wednesday with a felony count of unlawful delivery of a controlled substance after police say items found in her possession tested positive for heroin.
Brittany K. Hursh, 17, of the 2100 block of Snow Creek Road, was arrested at 9:32 p.m. Wednesday after officers saw her making a drug transaction, Naperville Police Sgt. Nick Liberio said.
The Naperville Police Department’s Special Operations Unit conducted an investigative stop after the officers saw Hursh making the transaction in a parking lot at Route 59 and 75th Street, Liberio said. Hursh was found to be in the possession of several foil packets and related drug paraphernalia. All of the items tested positive for the presence of heroin.
She was taken to the DuPage County Jail and charged with the Class 1 felony in DuPage County, Liberio said.
Naperville police also made two other heroin-related arrests earlier in the week.
Police received information from residents about people selling heroin, Liberio said in a news release. Carly J. Cooper, 21, and Brandon A. Bolton, 24, of the first block of South Madison Avenue in Aurora, were arrested Tuesday after a month-long investigation conducted by members of the Naperville Police Department’s Special Operations Group and Intel Unit, Liberio said.
The pair was seen making a drug transaction in the parking lot of a retail store in the 700 block of South Route 59 and arrested at 7:18 p.m. Jan. 31, Liberio said.
Police found 15 bags of a substance, which tested positive for heroin, Liberio said. Cooper and Bolton were both charged with a Class 1 felony for unlawful delivery of a controlled substance.
