An Indiana woman was sentenced Wednesday to nine years in prison for selling heroin.

Pamela Bobby, 47, sold .9 gross grams of heroin for $100 to an informant who was working with Hammond, Indiana police in November 2009.

Bobby was under probation at the time for maintaining a common nuisance charge. She was given six additional months of probation for the violation.

Bobby pled guilty to the drug charge in June.
 
A report by Roosevelt University released last month concluded that heroin use in Chicago has steadily increased over the past decade.

A huge bust last week netted 10 kilos of the drug and about $5 million in cash, police said.
