Pickaway – Over the past week most towns in Easern Pickaway and the West side of Fairfield county have reported a helicopter circling overhead at close range, now they have reported that hundreds of plants were seized in the drug bust.
According to the Pickaway County sheriff’s office, the Ohio Department of Transportation helicopter helped in the almost week long search all over the county.
Funding for this usually comes from a grant from the DEA.
“Until they legalized it, other than prescription marijuana, sure there will be enforcement. You can’t just go and grow it for a profit and put other drugs in it,” an Ohio sheriff said.
According to the Pickaway County Sheriff’s office, 135 Plants were seized in Pickaway county and 215 in Fairfield county.
It is unknown if anyone has been charged with the illegal drugs at this time, we have reached out for more information.
