Deputies make record bust in quiet Ohio township

ASSOCIATED PRESS

CLEVELAND — Sheriff’s detectives in rural northeast Ohio have made the county’s biggest drug seizure as part of an investigation that could have ties to Mexican drug cartels.

Investigators in Geauga County, east of Cleveland, raided a home in a secluded neighborhood in Newbury Township last week and seized six pounds of crystal methamphetamine, 2.2 pounds of black tar heroin, 100 pounds of marijuana and $128,000 in cash.

A sheriff’s department official says deputies arrested four people and that a number of loaded firearms were found during the raid. The official says it’s possible the ring had ties to Mexican drug cartels.

The official says it appears that some of the home’s occupants made regular trips to and from California.
