Task force arrests man, seizes drugs, property

TIFFIN — Crack cocaine, marijuana, drug paraphernalia, criminal tools, and suspected stolen property were confiscated Friday night during a raid on a mobile home at the Westgate Trailer Park here, authorities said.

The Seneca County Drug Task Force, also known as the METRICH Enforcement Unit, consisting of the Tiffin and Fostoria police officers, county sheriff's deputies, representatives of the county prosecutor's office, and Tiffin police special response and canine teams served a search warrant at the home of Tyson L. Jones, 29. Mr. Jones and two children, 3 and 5, were in the residence at the time.

Mr. Jones was arrested and charged with possession of crack cocaine, a felony. Additional charges are possible as the investigation continues, authorities said.

The Drug Task Force is focusing on crack houses that are setting up in residential communities. METRICH is a nine-county enforcement agency based in Mansfield, Ohio.
