(BLOOMINGTON) - Bloomington police arrested a 22-year-old woman for possession of $200 worth of heroin on the city's North side last week.

Shelby Lynne Murello's roommate, concerned for Murello's well-being, contacted the Bloomington Police Department because she thought Murello was using drugs.

According to Bloomington Police Lt. Steve Kellams when officers arrived at the house, Murello told police she had used heroin in the past on a daily basis at some points but that she had been sober for three months.

But police determined Murello lied about her drug use. Murello gave police permission to search her room and they found several needles and caps in a drawer.

Police found a wooden box hid in the garage with several needles, a spoon burned on the bottom and a little case with what looked like a piece of gravel.

She told police she purchased the heroin in Indianapolis for $200, but she had only used it once because it was not as potent as heroin she had used in the past. She was arrested on a felony charge of possession of a narcotic drug.
