(Aurora, Ind.) - Drug dealing was a family affair for three Aurorans.
That is until Dearborn and Ohio County Special Crimes Unit detectives caught on and arrested two of them Wednesday.
According to a probable cause affidavit from Dearborn Circuit Court, investigators were contacted by a confidential informant April 26. The informant stated a woman had forty tablets of hydrocodone, a prescription painkiller, for sale for about $200.
Later that day, detectives set up a monitored drug buy between the informant and Stacy Mills. Mills was given money for the drugs, went to retrieve them, then met up later with the informant in an alley on Second Street in downtown Aurora to complete the deal.
Mills allegedly told the informant that the pills were being supplied by her father William E. Mills, Sr.
On June 1, another buy was set up between the crimes unit detectives and Jacqueline Mills, the mother of Stacy. The deal would be completed in the same alley on Second Street.
William Mills, Sr., 52, and Jacqueline Mills, 49, were each arrested Wednesday, July 14 and charged with Dealing in a Controlled Substance. William Mills faces an additional charge of Probation Violation.
They are both held in the Dearborn County Law Enforcement Center.
