Cash, drugs seized in traffic stop

Drugs and cash were confiscated Wednesday during a traffic stop, Bucyrus police reported.

Bucyrus police Chief Dave Koepke said a Bucyrus man in his early 20s was arrested and is being held at the Crawford County Justice Center pending drug charges after a reported stop sign violation around 5 p.m. Wednesday.

"The K-9 unit of the Ohio State Highway Patrol responded to the scene very quickly and we were able to seize a significant amount of narcotics and cash," Koepke said.

Koepke said the drugs confiscated include Ecstasy, Percocet, marijuana and cocaine. The METRICH Investigative Unit assisted in the search and seizure.

"This is another great reminder the challenge and benefit from a cooperative effort. Great work by all involved," Koepke said.

Koepke said the investigation is ongoing and more information will be released within the next few days.
