WASHINGTON COUNTY HEROIN SUPPLIER ARRESTED

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 in Columbus.

A photograph of Wright is attached. Please direct further inquiries to Washington County Prosecutor Jim Schneider at 373-6623.
