Police arrest one in Harrison County drug bust
Updated: Tuesday, July 30 2013, 08:10 PM EDT
HARRISON COUNTY, Ohio - The Harrison County Sheriff's Office spent a month keeping watch on Tristen McGuire. After making multiple controlled buys, they were able to take McGuire into custody Tuesday, easing the mind of a few residents.
Police made a traffic stop in Scio, arresting the 19-year-old from San Diego on drugs
"With the money that he was requesting as this time, we weren't going to let that money walk," Harrison County Sheriff Ron Myers said. "We decided our drug agents made the decision to make the buy-bust and that's what we did."
The bust ended the month-long of surveillance of McGuire. Police initiated the bust within 1,000 feet of a school, raising concern for residents in the area that have children.
"Yeah, that does concern me because we do have a lot of kids around here in the neighborhood and I see them walk up and down the street all day long," Scio resident Troy Burrows said. "So there is a lot of kids around so that does concern me."
And the thought of having a suspected drug dealer around town wasn't one that sat well with local residents.
"I'm glad that they got him. This town, I said, we got a lot of kids around here and just to know that they got him off the street, I'm really happy for that," Burrows said. "I've got my kids that play around here too, and I don't want them being exposed to that."
McGuire was charged with trafficking with the intent to distribute and will await his preliminary hearing.
"We do take this very seriously, our drug agents that we have and they work really well together," Myers said. "So we get the ultimate thing of getting drugs off the street."
Myers also said that because this bust was made within 1,000 feet of a school, there could be additional charges added for McGuire. Right now he is being held on a $75,000 bail at the Harrison County Jail.
