FAIRFIELD, Ohio (WDTN) – Thousands of dollars in cash, drugs, and weapons were confiscated by police in Butler County on Tuesday.

Butler County Sheriff Richard K. Jones reports that the Butler County Undercover Regional Narcotics Taskforce (BURN) executed a search warrant at 5380 Sandstone Dr. in the city of Fairfield on November 27.

Over $3,000 in cash, marijuana, hash oil, and vaping devices pre-loaded with a marijuana substance were confiscated, in addition to multiple firearms, two of which were stolen.

48-year-old Jeffrey Scott was arrested and charged with trafficking in drugs and possession of drugs, both third-degree felonies.

“This was a great investigation that ends with another illegal business stopped,” says Sheriff Jones. “These guys always work diligently to get people like this locked up and drugs and guns off our streets.”

Sgt. Mike Hackney commented that the drugs have a street value of around $20,000 and that more charges will be added.
