One person has been charged and another taken to the hospital after an incident involving illegal drugs Tuesday night in Bainbridge.
Ross County Sheriff George Lavender reports that shortly after 9pm on Wednesday, one of his patrol deputies stopped at the First Stop Gas Station in Bainbridge to check on a suspicious vehicle. The deputy made contact with 37-year-old Jeremiah Miller and 33-year-old Sean Cawood. Cawood appeared to be actively overdosing at the time.
A squad was called for Cawood and he was transported to Adena Hospital in Greenfield. During the investigation a firearm was observed in plain sight in the vehicle. This lead to a search being conducted of the vehicle.
Deputies discovered suspected Meth, Fentanyl, Prescription Drugs, Cash, Drug Abuse Instruments, Items associated with Drug Trafficking, and suspected stolen items. Miller was arrested and charged with Improperly Handling a Firearm in a Motor Vehicle.
The investigation is ongoing and further charges will be filed at the completion.
