Byesville Police conduct "Buy-Bust" operation



BYESVILLE, Ohio -- A pair of Byesville residents are facing felony drug charges following a controlled buy-bust operation conducted in the Village on Tuesday.
According to Byesville Police Chief Jason May, 33-year-old Jessica McCracken of Byesville has been charged with a felony-three count of complicity to commit aggravated trafficking in drugs. And 28-year-old Robbie Stevens has been charged with aggravated trafficking in drugs, also a felony-three offense. The alleged crime took place within 1,000 feet of a school, increasing the severity of the offense.
May stated that undercover officers purchased morphine pills at a residence in the village earlier this week. Authorities then reportedly conducted a traffic stop of the home's residents on Tuesday, in which more morphine pills, a crack pipe and other paraphernalia were allegedly recovered. The Ohio State Highway Patrol and the Guernsey County Sheriff's Office assisted Byesville Police with the traffic stop.
Both McCracken and Stevens are currently in custody in the Guernsey County Jail: McCracken in lieu of $25,000 bond, Stevens $30,000.
