Two Galion residents were arrested on drug charges Wednesday, Galion police said.

A 51-year-old man was arrested after officers with a search warrant found suspected heroin, marijuana, drug paraphernalia, syringes, prescription medication and cash in his North Market Street home.

Another man, Kraig Onie, 43, was arrested on outstanding warrants.

Charges are pending, according to Galion police Chief Brian Saterfield.
