Tiffin doctor charged with 30 drug-related counts

TIFFIN -- A Tiffin doctor has been charged with 30 drug-related counts following a long investigation into local prescription-drug trafficking, the Seneca County Drug Task Force's METRICH enforcement unit announced late Wednesday.

A Seneca County grand jury handed up the 30-count indictment against Samuel J. Christian, 55, based on evidence gathered by the enforcement unit, the Ohio State Board of Pharmacy Office, and the Ohio State Medical Board, according to a statement.

Dr. Christian is charged with 24 counts of aggravated drug trafficking, a second-degree felony; two counts each of third-degree and fourth-degree drug trafficking, and single counts each of fifth-degree drug trafficking and methadone treatment license violation. He was held Wednesday night in the Seneca County jail pending further court proceedings.
