PREBLE COUNTY LEADS OHIO IN 2016 OHP DRUG CONFISCATIONS

(Preble County, OH)--More illegal drugs were seized in Preble County than in any other Ohio county last year, according to newly-released statistics from the Ohio Highway Patrol.  The high drug seizure ranking is the direct result of the OHP’s concentration on taking drugs off Ohio highways as soon as they’re brought into the state.  Patrol members on eastbound I-70 look for several indicators as vehicles cross from Indiana into Ohio.  In Preble County last year, troopers seized a total of almost four pounds of cocaine, 66 pounds of heroin, and 479 pounds of marijuana.
