Charges pending after search warrant

A drug-related search warrant yielded evidence consistent with drug trafficking, according to Seneca County Drug Task Force - METRICH Enforcement Unit.

The search warrant, which was signed by Judge Jay Meyer of Seneca County Juvenile and Probate Court, was executed at 11:34 p.m. Sunday at 297 Wall St.

It yielded money, marijuana, suspected heroin residue, criminal tools and prescription medication, according to a release from the task force.

Chuck Boyer, unit coordinator, said substances - a powder residue on a scale and on a dresser - were found out in the open. They have to be sent to a laboratory for more conclusive testing.

Boyer said no one had been charged Monday night.

"Someone (allegedly) was selling from the residence. I don't know who was yet," he said.

Charges of trafficking heroin, illicit possession of prescription pills and possession of criminal tools were pending on Walt K. Jackson, 44, of Detroit, and a charge of permitting drug abuse was pending on Sharon D. Spears, 42, of Tiffin, according to the release.

Boyer said officers were led to the residence through complaints from area residents, and they started their own investigation.

They noticed an affiliation between Terrell K. Travis, 18, of Detroit, who was charged with two counts of aggravated trafficking in drugs, one a first-degree felony and one a fourth-degree felony, after a search warrant at 194 E. Perry St., and

Kenyaha L. Jackson, 26 of Tiffin, who was charged with drug abuse, a third-degree felony; trafficking in drugs, a fifth-degree felony; resisting arrest, a second-degree misdemeanor; and drug abuse, a minor misdemeanor.

Kenyaha Jackson, who was arrested at Tiffin Motel, is Walt Jackson's son, Boyer said.

"They found additional heroin in (Kenyaha's) possession," he said. Tiffin Police Department officers, including its canine unit, assisted with Sunday's search warrant.
