CAMBRIDGE, Ohio -- A Kimbolton resident is in the Guernsey County Jail following a reported drug bust.
According to Capt. Jeff Paden of the Guernsey County Sheriff's Office, a search was executed at a Plainfield Road residence on Thursday after multiple controlled purchases of narcotics were made at the home. The 42-year-old female suspect reportedly attempted to eat some of the evidence when confronted by deputies. The search allegedly turned up cash and a large quantity of prescription drugs - specifically Oxycodone.
Juveniles were present in the home when the raid was conducted, who were taken from the home and placed into a relatives' custody.
The woman was taken into custody and remains in behind bars in the Guernsey County Jail. Charges are pending against the suspect sometime today.
Paden stated the operation was another in a series of raids being conducted to combat drugs and drug trafficking in Guernsey County.
