Heroin Addiction

A 41-year-old woman was arrested for injecting a teenage boy with drugs. According to Chieftan.com, Diana Larimore was arrested on suspicion of possession of a controlled substance, and contributing to the delinquency of a minor.

Police were sent to investigate a narcotics violation at Parkview Medical Center, where the boy has been treated. The boy's father said Larimore, who is a relative, injected his son with heroin. Larimore has a protective order, barring her contact with the victim or his family.

According to documents, Larimore told the boy "they were going to shoot heroin together," and she "applied a tourniquet to the victim's right bicep and injected him using a insulin syringe contained a black liquid substance."

The boy's father found two syringes full of a a "dark brown liquid substance," when he searched his son's backpack. The affidavit said Larimore gave the boy the drug-filled needles, "to shoot later." This boy is still in high school. A field test proved that the substance was opium, and not heroin.

Larimore was arrested, and being held on a $75,000 bond.
