ARRESTS MADE IN ECSTASY, COCAINE SALES CASES

Four suspects were arrested by the Major Crimes Task Force this afternoon for their roles in possessing and selling cocaine and ecstasy. The suspects arrested and the felony charges on which they are being held are:

Julie A. Hupp, age 33, for trafficking in drugs;

Jacobs, Hupp, Miller and Allen were all arrested at their upstairs apartment at 404 Montgomery Street, Marietta, following the execution of a search warrant. Task Force Agents requested the search warrant after using an undercover operative to purchase from Jacobs on 25 Jan 10.

On 25 Jan 10 as well, Agents used a confidential informant to purchase two ecstasy pills from Ms. Hupp in the vicinity of the 900 block of Hocking Road in Belpre.
