Circleville Police make drug busts, one ends on pursuit



The Circleville Police Department made two drug busts on Tuesday, with one ending in a chase.

Here’s what the police department released:

On April 28, 2020, the Circleville Police Department made two traffic stops resulting in the seizure of various illegal narcotics. K-9 Sergey was instrumental in locating heroin, drug paraphernalia, drug abuse instruments, prescription pills, and marijuana. The first traffic stop was conducted in the 700 block of N. Court Street and the second traffic stop was on US23 just north of the cloverleaf after a short pursuit.

These two incidents are a direct result of an ongoing investigation by the Circleville Police Department stemming from drug overdoses in our community. The names and criminal charges will be released in the near future. We would like to thank Circleville Municipal Court, Probation Department and the Pickaway County Intensive Supervision Department for all their assistance today.
