GOSHEN TOWNSHIP, OH (FOX19) - A Goshen man is facing charges for trafficking drugs from California.
On Jan. 20, the Goshen Township Police Department, assisted by the Clermont County Narcotics Unit, Bureau of Criminal Investigations and an agent from the United States Postal Service, executed a search warrant at the residence of Thomas Hauer, 47.
Items seized in the raid included two and one-quarter pounds of marijuana that was tightly sealed that had been shipped via the U.S. mail. Drug paraphernalia and a shotgun were also seized.
Goshen Township Police contacted authorities in Novato, Calif., who began their own investigation that later resulted in a search warrant.
Upon executing the warrant at the home, they found a large grow operation and seized approximately 25 pounds of processed marijuana, 50 marijuana plants, and drug paraphernalia.
Anthony Largo of Novato was arrested and others are being investigated.
Goshen Township Police will be seeking indictment of a 25 year old man who lives in California, but previously lived in Milford and was obtaining his supply from the Novato home to ship to Hauer in Goshen.
