CIRCLEVILLE – On April 29, 2020, Personnel from the Circleville Police Department again removed dangerous drugs and a loaded gun from the streets of our community. Three drug related traffic stops were made simultaneously followed by the execution of a search warrant at 333 Walnut St. In total today, we recovered a loaded .40 caliber handgun, scales, drug paraphernalia, drug abuse instruments, scales, cash, prescription pills, marijuana, and a bag of white powder possibly containing fentanyl. K-9 Sergey again played a vital role in today’s efforts to eradicate drugs and dangerous/ illegal guns from our neighborhoods.
These incidents are a direct result of an ongoing investigation by the Circleville Police Department stemming from drug overdoses in our community. The names and criminal charges will be released in the near future.
