Citizens complaints led to the arrest of three Perry County residents.

Agents with the Central Ohio Drug Enforcement Task Force executed a search warrant at 500 Tile Plant Road Lot #13 in New Lexington around 2p.m. Tuesday.

Agents seized large quantities of prescription drugs including Oxycodone, Percocet and Opana.

The three arrested were taken to the Perry County Sheriff’s Office and later released. More suspects are being interviewed and the Perry County Sheriff’s Office said more arrests could follow.

Names aren’t being released until the conclusion of the investigation or until formal charges are filed.

The investigation into this case began in March after citizen complaints of drug trafficking occurring at the residence.
