On 11 Dec 03 Deputy Sheriffs initiated a traffic stop on a blue truck on Muskingum Drive in Marietta. Suspecting the presence of drugs, Deputies requested the assistance of the K-9 unit from the Belpre Police Department. The K-9 indicated the presence of drugs and a search yielded a used syringe and an empty bag Deputies believe contained heroin. A check of the driver, Timothy J. Thorne, age 35, 1419 Hocking Road, Belpre, showed he was driving under FRA suspension and Deputies also found a bottle of narcotics and a scale used to weigh narcotics in his possession.
