Mental Health Patient from Sussex Receives Heroin Delivery
The Sussex woman and Milwaukee man are both charged after a nurse finds a heroin kit and heroin during a visitation at the Waukesha County Mental Health Facility.
A 23-year-old Sussex woman and a Milwaukee man are facing charges after she allegedly had him smuggle her some heroin and a heroin kit while she was staying in the Waukesha County Mental Health Facility.
Ada Lala was charged in Waukesha County Circuit Court Monday with one count of possession of a narcotic drug and one count of possession of drug paraphernalia. Robert L. Orrey, 42, was charged with one count of manufacture and delivery of heroin near a treatment facility. If convicted, she faces up to three years and seven months in prison, and Orrey faces up to 12 ½ years in prison.
According to the criminal complaint:
Orrey came to visit Lala early Sunday morning at the mental health facility. A nurse noticed the two leave the visiting area and go back to Lala’s room, which violates facility policy. The nurse went back to the room to tell them to return to the visiting area, but she noticed Lala coming out of the bathroom and trying to conceal something.
The nurse asked Lala what she had, and she lifted up her sweater to reveal a heroin kit and piece of tinfoil with a small amount of heroin inside. When deputies arrived, Lala told them she had Orrey bring the heroin and kit to the facility so she could “get high,” but Orrey denied the allegation.
And this isn't the first time Orrey has been in court. Patch reported in January that a 21-year-old Sussex woman, Erli N. Lala, and Orrey were caught stealing scrap metal from an area manufacturer. It was worth roughly $700.
Orrey is currently being held in Waukesha County Jail on $500 bond, while an arrest warrant has been issued for Lala.
