SIDNEY — A narcotics search warrant executed by the Sidney Police Department resulted in the arrest of three people and the confiscation of meth, fentanyl, drug paraphernalia, a loaded handgun and cash Wednesday morning.
According to Sidney Police Capt. Jerry A. Tangeman’s press release, on Wednesday, May 1, 2019, at approximately 8:30 a.m., the Sidney Police Department executed a narcotics search warrant at 121 Queen St. in Sidney. The initial entry and securing of the location had to be accomplished by utilizing the services of the Sidney-Piqua Tactical Response Team (TRT), the release said. The TRT was used because the residence was deemed a high risk to officer’s safety.
Recovered during the search were meth, fentanyl, drug paraphernalia, a loaded .380 handgun and cash. As a result of the search warrant, the following three people were arrested and incarcerated at the Shelby County Jail:
• Rashaan Jones, 44, 121 Queen St., was charged with drug trafficking, a third-degree felony;
• Jarreth V. Hall, 19, 121 Queen St., was charged with drug trafficking, a third-degree felony;
• Michelle R. Dubose, 28, 121 Queen St., was charged with the possession of drugs, a fifth-degree felony.
Additional charges are being reviewed and likely will be filed at a later date.
This warrant execution is a continuing effort by the Sidney Police Department to combat drug abuse and drug trafficking in Sidney. Information resulting in this warrant was derived in part from concerned citizens.
