FAIRFIELD, Ohio (WXIX) - A 25-year-old man was arrested transporting a kilogram of fentanyl through Butler County, according to the sheriff’s office.

It happened Friday at the intersection of Ohio 4 and Boymel Drive in Fairfield.

Butler County sheriff’s deputies stopped a car driven by Adrian Eliud Casilles, 25, of Hilliard.

Said Butler County Sheriff Richard Jones, “This is what happens when you bring drugs into Butler County. We take your drugs and we take you to jail.”
