WASHINGTON COUNTY HEROIN
Washington County Drug Team officers concluded
a two month investigation on 27 Sep 05 with the arrest of Toray
K. Wright (click for photo), age
27, 3104 Bennington Avenue, Columbus, OH. Drug Team operatives
identified Columbus as a source city for the heroin imported
into the Washington County area and Wright as one of the major
suppliers. Numerous addicts from this area have been documented
traveling to Columbus to obtain heroin from Wright and returning
to use or distribute the drug here. Many times the cash utilized
to make these purchases were derived from the proceeds obtained
from burglaries, thefts, breaking and enterings as well as
other various types of thefts perpetrated in Washington County.
Wright was arrested without incident on Hamilton Road in Columbus
by the Columbus Police Department Tactical Unit assisted by
the Drug Team after Wright sold an undercover officer eleven
grams of heroin. Officers acting in an undercover capacity
previously purchased twenty-three grams of heroin from Wright.
Wright is currently incarcerated in the Franklin County Jail
A photograph of Wright is attached. Please direct further inquiries to Washington
County Prosecutor Jim Schneider at 373-6623.
