PORTAGE COUNTY, OH (WOIO) -

The Portage County Drug Task Force, after receiving several complaints over the past four months of drug use and prostitution on Gilbert Road in Paris Township, arrested Lisa B. Carneal, 35, and Richard C. Roberts, 59. 

Lisa Carneal was charged with soliciting and possession of heroin. Richard Roberts was charged with promoting prostitution and permitting drug abuse. 

According to Sheriff David W. Doak, Task Force members learned during their investigation that Lisa Carneal was soliciting herself online in the Ravenna, Newton Falls and Youngstown area.  Task Force Agents also learned that Carneal was currently under indictment in Summit County for violating State Narcotic Laws. 

Narcotic Agents conducted an undercover operation and arrested Carneal after she directed an undercover officer to come to her residence where she solicited the officer.  Task Force agents obtained a Court Ordered Search Warrant for the residence where they recovered computers, heroin and drug paraphernalia.

Task Force Agents will submit their investigation to the Prosecutor's Office, pending additional charges after review by the Grand Jury.
