DTF raids McIntosh Road residence

WELLSVILLE — For a second straight day the county Drug Task Force and deputies office went looking for drugs at a home in the southern end of the county.

Detective Sgt. Brett Grabman, the DTF director, reported on Thursday a search warrant led to the seizure of drugs, cash, guns and numerous drug-related tools from a home at 17193 McIntosh Road, Wellsville.

About 77 grams of methamphetamines were seized along with suspected crack cocaine, marijuana and numerous prescription pills. Additionally, authorities found $663 in suspected drug proceeds, one shotgun, two pistols, numerous digital scales and paraphernalia items.

Any charges are pending lab results from the Ohio Bureau of Criminal Investigations.

Tax records through the county auditor’s office show the home is a one-family dwelling owned by a Collin M. Kinsey Jr., although authorities did not say who was living in the home.

This is the second home raided in two days by the DTF, assisted by other law enforcement officers. On Wednesday, authorities seized a similar drugs and drug-related items from a home on Morton Street in East Liverpool.
