Brimley woman goes to jail on drug charge

A Brimley woman will spend a year in jail on a drug charge.

Onalee Chippewa, 33, recently pleaded guilty to delivery of less than 50 grams of a controlled substance.

Her co-defendant in the case is already serving a year in the Chippewa County Jail. Sam Kendrick, Jr., 24, of Detroit pleaded guilty in February to three counts of delivery of heroin.

The Straits Area Narcotics Enforcement Team arrested the pair last December in Superior Township. Officers seized heroin, cash and other drug paraphernalia from their home.
