A man and teenage girl who was reported as a runaway from Columbus were arrested when a drug-related search warrant was executed at a Tiffin residence for the second time in two weeks Tuesday.

Seneca County Drug Task Force — METRICH Enforcement Unit with assistance from Tiffin Police Department executed the warrant at 42½ W. Perry St., the residence of Jerell A. Carroll, 26, and a 15-year-old girl, both formerly of Columbus, according to a METRICH release.

He was taken to Seneca County Jail.

The girl was charged with trafficking crack cocaine, a fifth-degree felony, and was taken to Seneca County Youth Center.

The warrant yielded money, suspected crack cocaine and criminal tools, according to the release.

The task force executed a drug-related search warrant at the same residence June 27.
