Suspected fentanyl, cash seized from Sycamore residence in drug investigation




Sycamore, Ohio — Drugs and cash were among the items seized from a Sycamore residence when police executed a search warrant at the property last week.

On Wednesday, Oct. 19, at 11:23 a.m., the Wyandot County Special Response Team served a residential search warrant at 105 E. Seventh St., Sycamore.

The residence was searched by detectives from the Wyandot County Major Crimes Unit and the Seneca County Drug Task Force / METRICH Enforcement Unit.

During the search, detectives confiscated suspected fentanyl, U.S. currency, and items indicative of drug trafficking, according to a press release from the Wyandot County Major Crimes Unit.

Two people were found inside the residence at the time of the search. Detectives identified one of the occupants as 43-year-old Mitchell R. Adkins, who is currently out on bond for multiple drug trafficking charges out of Seneca County, according to the press release.

Detectives interviewed Adkins and the other occupant before releasing them pending laboratory analysis results on the suspected fentanyl seized from the residence. Felony drug possession charges are expected, according to police.

“The seizure of the drugs and cash were the result of an investigation into illegal narcotics being distributed in Wyandot and Seneca counties. The Wyandot County Major Crimes Unit would like to thank the Wyandot County Sheriff’s Office SRT, the Wyandot County Prosecutor’s Office, the Seneca County Drug Task Force and the METRICH Enforcement Unit for their help in this successful investigation,” the press release states.
