The Butler County's Sheriff's Office announced they recovered several different illegal drugs and a large amount of cash after a Hamilton drug search.

The Butler County Under Cover Regional Narcotics Taskforce (B.U.R.N) recovered several different illegal drugs, drug paraphernalia and approximately $40,000 in cash after a search warrant was executed at a man's Lagonda Avenue apartment, according to Sgt. Owens.

Sgt. Owens says the drugs included marijuana, heroin, crack cocaine, and prescription medication.

Shannon Taggart, 38, was arrested and charged with three counts of trafficking drugs and possession of drugs.

“This guy was selling a smorgasbord of drugs, literally, there were about a half a dozen different illegal drugs to choose from.  This probably made his business more appealing to the thugs that were buying it. But, like every other heart-warming drug trafficker story, Mr. Taggart is now in the Butler County Jail where he belongs,” said Sheriff Jones, in a release.
