Tuesday morning, deputies along with the Ohio Board of Pharmacy issued a search warrant at 100 Sally Road.

Sheriff Matt Lutz said the investigation is a local veterinarian. Four adults were home at the time of the warrant, one was taken into custody.

"We had some complaints of a local veterinarian with some questionable dispensing of prescription medication and so during the investigation we go enough information to get a search warrant and now we’re here executing a search warrant to see what we can find," said Muskingum County Sheriff Matt Lutz.

Sheriff Lutz said they’ll speak with Muskingum County Prosecutor Mike Haddox to discuss charges. Those charges will depend on what is found in the home.

Sheriff Lutz said the warrant is a result of an investigation by the joint drug unit of the Zanesville Police Department, the Muskingum County Sheriff’s Office and the State Pharmacy Board.
