Findlay, Ohio — A joint operation led by the Hancock County METRICH Drug Task Force resulted in the arrest of a 35-year-old woman on drug-related charges Tuesday.

According to the authorities, the team, consisting of the Hancock County Sheriff’s Office, the Findlay Police Department, and the SPCA of Hancock County, executed a search warrant at a residence located at 614 Putnam St., Findlay, Ohio.

The search yielded approximately 2.5 kilograms of marijuana, 34 grams of psilocybin mushrooms, 226 grams of hashish wax, 461 THC vape pens and cartridges, 59 packages of THC edibles, and $1,667 in cash. Also found were several items of paraphernalia and items indicative of drug trafficking, according to a press release from METRICH.

As a result of the operation, Brittany M. Hill, 35, was arrested and taken to the Hancock County Justice Center. She faces charges of possession of marijuana, possession of psilocybin, and possession of THC wax — all of which are third-degree felonies.

The SPCA of Hancock County also cited Hill for some animal violations, but it is unclear what those violations entail. Additional drug-related charges are expected to be filed at the conclusion of the investigation, according to the release.

The authorities did not release any further information about the case, and it is not clear whether anyone else was involved.
