FREMONT, OH ( News) — On Monday, at approximately 6:40 p.m., the Sandusky County Drug Task Force, executed a search warrant 817 North Fifth Street, Fremont, Sandusky County, Ohio.

This is the residence of Christopher Lee Silva, 34, of Fremont, who was not present at the time of the search. Silva was later located at a residence in Siam, Ohio.

Silva provided consent to search at the residence in Siam, where approximately $5,500.00 was seized from his vehicle.
