MOUNT GILEAD, OH (WCMH) – The Morrow County Sheriff’s Office Wednesday started serving 21 warrants on people wanted for drug trafficking.
The Sheriff’s office said the indictments are the result of an investigation that started in summer of 2016.
Sheriff John L. Hinton said the indictments are important because of the strong connection between burglaries and drug use in the community.
“Thus, it is our hope that by aggressively pursuing the drug traffickers that we will drive the illicit drug trade from our county and that this will ultimately reduce the number of property crimes in our county,” Hinton said.
