(Lawrenceburg, Ind.) – A mother and son are accused of dealing prescription pills and heroin, sometimes to students at Lawrenceburg schools.
The Dearborn County Special Crimes Unit began investigating Jerri Lynne May and her son, Eric May, both of Lawrenceburg, in March of 2013.
Detectives learned from an undercover officer that Jerri May, 54, was allegedly selling to students. She and Eric May, 33, allegedly dealt from their apartment on Elm Street in Lawrenceburg, a trailer on Lawrenceburg Road in Ohio, her vehicle at the Lawrenceburg Kroger parking lot, and during her breaks from work at a gas station in Greendale.
SCU investigators utilized an undercover officer to record Jerri and Eric May dealing on multiple occasions between March 4 and April 4, 2014. One of the Oxycodone pill deals took place at the Mays’ apartment on Elm Street, which is located within 1,000 feet of St. Lawrence School and Arch Street Park.
Jerri May and Eric May are each charged with Dealing in a Schedule II Controlled Substance within 1,000 Feet of School Property or a Public Park (Class A felony) and Dealing in a Schedule II Controlled Substance (Class B felony).
Jerri Amy was arrested July 25. Eric May was booked into jail a few days later on July 30. They both remain held behind bars as of Wednesday.
Good that they got enough evidence to get them. Takes so long for law enforcement to get enough on these people to get the charges to stick so our taxes don't go to a defense lawyer to get them off.
Dealing drugs is bad but so is buying and using. Lets hear the names of all the people buying this stuff so we can drag their names through the mud. I'm sure there are plenty of adults,students and parents praying that this information never makes it on the internet.
@soapbox And if we didn't have the sellers we wouldn't have anyone buying!!
She does. Her daughter and granddaughter live with her in Lawrenceburg! Like you said what a role model.
@RL2375 Yes she has a daughter and granddaughter but NO they do NOT live with them. Don't bring them into this mess.
@RL2375 No, Her daughter and Granddaughter do not live with her.
@getrealfool I guess by your logic it is fair to say that if we didn't have people wanting to buy we wouldn't have people trying to sell. Truth is as long as there are losers wanting to buy drugs there will be losers there waiting to sell.
@Branded1 yes losers both the dealers AND the users. It seems like everybody wants to forget about all the losers that are on drugs. They need to be held responsible as well because NOBODY is forcing them to use.
