Police on scene following Steubenville drug bust
JEFFERSON COUNTY, Ohio —
Local authorities descended on Ross Street in Steubenville for a drug bust Friday night. It happened just before 9:30 p.m.
Jefferson County Sheriff Fred Abdalla told NEWS9 three firearms and a heroin/fentanyl mix were seized, as well as a small amount of cash.
One male suspect is now in police custody.
“As long as we can get some drugs off the street, I don’t care what the amount is, it needs to be taken off the street,” Sheriff Abdalla said. “But like I said, when you mix fentanyl and heroin together, that’s a double whammy on people.”
Toronto Police and EMS assisted the Jefferson County Drug Task Force on the bust.
