Drug Task Force Searches Fostoria Home

A man was arrested after a drug task force searched his home in Fostoria.

The Seneca County Drug Task Force – METRICH Enforcement Unit along with additional officers from Fostoria and Tiffin executed a drug-related search warrant at a residence on Northview Drive in Fostoria.

Authorities say they found suspected cocaine, crack cocaine, items indicative of drug trafficking, a stolen gun, US currency and criminal tools.

The residence was that of Andrae N. Moorer, 45, and he was arrested during a traffic stop.

He was taken into custody for a parole violation and will likely also be charged with drug trafficking, having a weapon under disability, child endangerment, receiving stolen property and possession of criminal tools.

“This type of operation improves the quality of life in our community when we have the success of removing not only drugs from our streets but also keeping firearms out of the hands of felons,” said Chief Keith Loreno of the Fostoria Police Division.
