On May 6th, Greensburg Police Department Officer Chris Bridges was assisting another officer. Officer Bridges observed a female that he knew to be Libby Henningsen sitting on the back porch of a home in the 700 block of W. Sheridan Street. He was aware that Henningsen had an active warrant from the State of Ohio. He confirmed the active warrant and took Henningsen into custody. When they arrived at the Decatur County Jail, Officer Bridges asked Henningsen if she had any illegal items on her. She reportedly stated that she did not have any illegal items. Officer Bridges read, signed, and gave Henningsen a copy of the warrant out of Hamilton County, Ohio for failure to appear on allegations of possession of aggravated drugs and possession of heroin.

According to the police report, Officer Bridges was contacted and asked to return to the Decatur County Jail. After arriving at the jail, he was informed that Henningsen had several items of illegal contraband on her. Henningsen reportedly placed several items on a table. When asked about one of the items, Henningsen stated that it was heroin. The other items were:

-A red plastic spoon with white/brown residue on the handle and spoon area with the residue later field testing positive for methamphetamine.

-An orange syringe/hypodermic needle cap.

-A piece of plastic with what appeared to be dried blood on it.

-A receipt

Libby Henningsen, 21 of Greensburg, faces allegations of trafficking with an inmate (a Level 5 felony) and possession of methamphetamine (a Level 6 felony). She was charged in Circuit Court on May 7th.

Under the law, criminal charges are merely accusations and the defendant is presumed innocent until proven guilty.
