GREENHILLS, Ohio - A Greenhills woman is in jail after police discovered her allegedly smoking heroin in her car while her 13-month-old child was present.
Police stopped Melinda Sue Rector's vehicle at about 7 p.m. Saturday for traffic warrants on Winton Road, according to court records. Rector and two other adults were inside the vehicle, along with the child.
