Three people were arrested on narcotics charges in Scioto County after deputies and narcotics agents served a search warrant in Lucasville, Ohio.
Patrick Joseph Rauck, 27, Cara R. Anderson, 28, and James R. Liles, 41, of Lucasville, Ohio, were arrested about 8:45 a.m. Tuesday at a home on Oak Street, according to a news release from the Scioto County Sheriff’s Office. They were charged with trafficking in oxycodone, a first-degree felony, the sheriff’s department said. Rauck also had several outstanding warrants issued by Portsmouth Municipal Court.
When members of the Southern Ohio Drug Task Force searched the residence, they seized $1,900 in cash, drug paraphernalia and empty prescription bottles for oxycodone pills that had been filled in Florida as recently as Aug. 21, the release said. Scioto County Sheriff Mary Donini said task force detectives had been conducting a narcotics investigation involving the three suspects for several weeks.
Rauck, Anderson and Liles were arraigned Wednesday in Portsmouth Municipal Court. Rauck is being held on a $77,000 bond, and Liles is being held on a holder placed by the Ohio Adult Parole Authority. The case against the three suspects will be forwarded to the Scioto County Prosecutor’s Office to be presented to a grand jury for consideration of additional drug-related charges.
