Trio arrested on drug charges in Seymour

Police responding to a report of a female overdosing on heroin late Sunday night wound up arresting two Seymour residents and a South Dakota man.

Emergency responders had to use three doses of naxolone before the woman responded and could be taken to Schneck Medical Center in Seymour for treatment, Seymour Detective Crystal Schapson said.

The woman was not arrested, but the incident led police to a residence on the city’s northeast side, where three people were arrested on various drug-related charges, she said.

They include, Cory M. Cox, 26, of Seymour, who faces a Level 5 felony charge of dealing in cocaine or narcotic and a Level 6 felony charge of maintaining a common nuisance along with misdemeanor charges of possession of marijuana, possession of paraphernalia and possession of a controlled substance.

The others arrested were Alice Marie Sterling, 47, of Seymour, who faces Level 6 felony charges of possession of methamphetamine or narcotic and maintaining a common nuisance and a misdemeanor charge of possession of paraphernalia; and Clay Ewin Easley, 50, of Sioux Falls, South Dakota, who faces misdemeanor charges of possession of paraphernalia and visiting a common nuisance.
