Two arrested when warrants served at Willow Creek Apartments

Two people were arrested when arrest and search warrants were served at Willow Creek Apartments on Tuesday afternoon.

Detective Chuck Boyer, unit coordinator of Seneca County Drug Task Force – METRICH Enforcement Unit, said it had been an ongoing investigation for several months and was linked to an investigation into a methamphetamine ring based in Akron and Bellevue.

Kyle M. Baker, 25, was arrested on a warrant for trafficking methamphetamine, a second-degree felony, he said.

Boyer said a search warrant then was executed at Apartment F-12, where Baker lives with Ashly R. Anderson, 26.

Anderson was arrested on a charge of permitting drug abuse, a fifth-degree felony, he said.

Further charges were pending against Baker Tuesday evening.

The warrants were executed at the apartments, 575 E. SR 18, by the drug task force, Seneca County Sheriff’s Office and Tiffin Police Department.

The warrant, which was signed by Judge Steve Shuff of Seneca County Common Pleas Court, yielded money, large amounts of suspected methamphetamine, prescription pills, marihuana, drug paraphernalia and criminal tools, according to the drug task force.

The substances are being sent for laboratory testing, Boyer said.

Anderson and Baker were incarcerated at Seneca County Jail on Tuesday.

Citizens can continue to report suspicious activity to their local agencies or task force’s hotline at (419) 443-0463.
