HAMILTON, OH (FOX19) -

A 38-year-old man faces charges after narcotics agents seized more than $10,000 worth of heroin and cocaine, Butler County Sheriff Richard K. Jones announced Wednesday.

Agents conducting a search warrant at a residence in the 200 block of Walnut Street found more than 40 grams of heroin and more than 40 grams of cocaine in addition to $500 in cash, a scale, cutting supplies and a press machine to prepare the drugs prior to distribution, Jones said.

"That is a lot of bad medicine removed from the street,” the sheriff said in a prepared statement.  “If you think for one second these criminals care who they are selling to, you’re way off base.  They want the money.  They don’t care if it’s a kid or adult as long as you are handing them some cash.  I am proud these agents took care of this one quickly, and there’s many more to come.”

Lateef Stewart, 38, was arrested and charged with two counts each of drug trafficking and possession of drugs. He also has outstanding warrants for child support.

Additional drug related charges will be presented to a Butler County grand jury, the sheriff said.
