2 Lima residents arrested in drug bust near Kalida

KALIDA, Ohio - Two Lima residents were arrested Thursday after a drug bust that netted crack cocaine with a street value of more than $24,000, authorities said.

Johnny Hall, 27, and Tarika Wilson, 22, will be arraigned Monday in Putnam County Court on charges of trafficking in cocaine. They are being held in the Putnam County jail.

They were arrested after sheriff's deputies and members of the Multi-Area Narcotics Team intercepted a drug deal near Kalida. Authorities said they confiscated nearly eight ounces of crack cocaine.
