Undercover investigation leads to methadone bust


A Warsaw woman was arrested on Thursday evening on charges of illegally selling over 70 methadone pills during an undercover buy.

The Kosciusko County Drug Task Force released information this morning regarding the arrest of Tanya Helser, 34, Warsaw.  She is preliminarily charged with dealing/selling a controlled schedule I, II, or III substance.  Kosciusko County Sheriff's Deputies went to Helser's residence around 6:30 p.m. on Thursday to serve the warrant.  According to a report the methadone pills were purchased during a two month investigation.  Officers estimated the street value of the methadone pills at $350.00.  

Helser was arrested last year on two separate charges of restricted sale of ephedrine.
