Geneva man arrested during drug bust

GENEVA — A 37-year-old Geneva man was arrested on drug trafficking charges Wednesday morning following a lengthy investigation.

Investigators with the TAG Law Enforcement Task Force, Ohio Bureau of Criminal Investigation and Identification, Ashtabula County Sheriff’s Department and the Geneva Police Department have been conducting the investigation into possible heroin trafficking over the past six months, said Det. Greg Leonhard, of TAG.

Judge Robert Wynn issued a search warrant through Eastern County Court Wednesday. The warrant was served at 3583 Austin Road Lot #84 in the Austin Trailer Park, he said.

One male was arrested and charged with trafficking in heroin as a result. His name is being withheld pending arraignment.

Investigators seized three firearms, drug paraphernalia, drug packaging materials, surveillance cameras and equipment during the warrant, Leonhard said.
