According to the Ross County Prosecutor's Office, on November 3rd of 2016, a Chillicothe Police Officer working drug interdiction reported he recognized a man crossing the street nearby, and that he was acting suspicious...and had bulges in his clothing.  

Drugs were found in the sock of 32-year-old Amon R. Crabtree of Liberty Hill Road.  They included three pseudoephedrine pills, a Suboxone pack, and 0.18 gram of synthetic heroin.  

The indictment of a fifth degree felony of possession of heroin may net up to 12 months and a $2,500 fine.

According to the Ross County Prosecutor's Office, on March 16th a Chillicothe Police Officer was on patrol when he saw a Cadillac in a traffic violation.  

The driver, 59-year-old Allen Hill of Whitehall near Columbus, was found to have a suspended operators licence. 

A police dog alerted to the car, but instead of drugs, a loaded five-shot revolver with the serial number ground off was found under the center console.  That led to indictments of improper handling of a firearm, and defacing its identification marks.  

Together they could net up to two years and $6,000 of fines.
