Deputies: Drug traffickers hid meth in snack bags

FAIRFIELD, OH (WLWT) —Two women are facing drug charges despite their attempts to disguise baggies full of meth, deputies say.

The Butler County Sheriff’s Office said it received word that someone would be bringing drugs into the county from Georgia.

Drug agents located the suspects on Aug. 20 on Pleasant Avenue in Fairfield and made a traffic stop.

More than a quarter-pound of methamphetamine was found in Combos snack bags and $1,000 was confiscated, the sheriff’s office said.

Lori Strasser, 45, and Brenda Dungan, 52, were charged with trafficking in drugs and possession of drugs.

“We have competitors telling on each other, which is good for our business. People are tired of this stuff, it affects everyone. We are happy to intercept the drugs and the criminals bringing them here,” Sheriff Richard Jones said in a news release.

The drugs have a street value of around $30,000, the sheriff’s office said.

“We are seeing a lot more of this type of distribution coming into the county. Luckily, we obtained great information to stop it before it was sold to anyone,” Sgt. Jason Owens said in the release.
