Butler County Drug Bust Nets Three; 55 lbs of Pot

(HAMILTON, OH) -- Three men are facing a list of charges after a major drug bust in Butler County. Officers arrested Demarian Harry,  David Garcia, and Jeff Craft after raiding a house on Cereal Avenue last night.

They seized 55 pounds of marijuana, 15-thousand dollars in cash, and several guns.

"When you have an operation this big, naturally, it's going to get out," said Butler County Sheriff Richard Jones. "People are coming and buying these drugs, in and out of the home, people can't get this done without somebody knowing that you're doing it, especially an operation this size."

The sheriff's department says they've recovered 131 pounds of pot. in the first five months of this years. That compares to just 36 pounds for the entire year in 2006.
