Drug Task Force Searches Findlay Residence

The Hancock County METRICH Drug Task Force along with the Findlay Police Department Emergency Response Team executed a search warrant at a Findlay residence.

Police say the search of 206 Western Avenue yielded 111 grams of methamphetamine, numerous loose prescription pills and a large amount of drug paraphernalia.

The evidence substantiated the ongoing investigation into the residence for suspected drug possession and drug trafficking, the task force said.

The substances seized will be sent to the BCI Crime Lab for further testing.

Charges for drug trafficking, drug possession and paraphernalia possession will be sought at a later date, pending the lab results.

Police identified the suspect as Derek Boyd, 26, of Findlay.
