A Findlay man was arrested on drug charges after local law enforcement authorities raided a city residence Wednesday evening.

At 6:25 p.m. Wednesday, the Hancock County METRICH Drug Task Force, with the assistance of the Findlay Police Department Emergency Response Team, executed a search warrant at 425 Monroe Ave., Lot 32, according to a release from the METRICH Drug Enforcement Unit.
