$100K, heroin discovered during drug bust in north Columbus

The Franklin County Drug Task Force made a major drug bust, recovering $102,000 in cash, $23,000 worth of brown powder heroin and $4,200 worth of cocaine.

Christopher Slone, 26, and Nona Mathews, 27, both face charges of possession of heroin and pending additional charges of possession of drugs, trafficking in drugs and weapons charges.

Police made the bust at a home in the 840 block of Stinson Court, located just south of intersection of Henderson and Olentangy River Roads. Inside the home, officers found cash, drugs and two firearms.

“Cutting off the supply of heroin has been a goal of our comprehensive approach to the heroin epidemic. The arrests made yesterday are another step forward of cleaning up our streets,” said Sheriff Zach Scott. “We will continue to aggressively pursue drug traffickers while working with our treatment partners on the HOPE Task Force to find long term solutions to the heroin epidemic that include treatment, prevention, and education.”
