A 62-year-old Tiffin resident was arrested and charged with trafficking in heroin following a traffic stop Thursday on North SR 53.
According to a release from the Seneca County Drug Task Force-METRICH Enforcement Unit, Robert J. Allison is being held at the Seneca County jail on the fifth-degree felony charge. Additional charges of trafficking in heroin are pending on the conclusion of the entire drug investigation.
"Our investigations are leading us to the sources who are distributing heroin in the city of Tiffin which also has a direct correlation with other violent crimes in the community," said METRICH Unit Coordinator Chuck Boyer in the release.
According to the release, troopers from the State Highway Patrol assisted METRICH with Allison's arrest.
Citizens are encouraged to continue to report suspicious activity to their local law enforcement agencies or to the METRICH Unit Crime Hotline at (877) 446-DRUG.
