TIFFIN - A Fremont man, one of seven people arrested in a drug bust in late October, was found guilty and sentenced to prison yesterday after a two-day jury trial in Seneca County Common Pleas Court.
Corey M. Price, 26, was found guilty of trafficking in crack cocaine in the vicinity of a school. After the jury returned its verdict in just over two hours, Judge Steve Shuff sentenced Price to 15 months in prison.
On Sept. 28, Price sold a rock of crack cocaine for $20 to an undercover informant working for the Seneca County Drug Task Force.
The sale occurred at the Riverbend Apartments, which is within 1,000 feet of Tiffin Calvert High School, county Prosecutor Ken Egbert, Jr., said.
