The Ohio Organized Crime Investigations Commission

investigations in Washington and Morgan Counties. This MCTF,

Attorney General DeWine stated “Drug
abuse is a problem, not only in Ohio, but also across the country,
which is why it is important that law enforcement work together
across jurisdictional boundaries and state lines. This case
is a great example of local, state, and federal law enforcement
working together to keep Ohioans, as well as our neighbors in
West Virginia, safe from the crime and violence associated with
the drug trade.”
