Muskingum County Law Enforcement find $75,000 in drugs, now two people are behind bars. 34-year-old Theophilus Nile Jr., originally of California and 28-year-old Tuesday Perry of Zanesville were formally charged today after a weekend drug raid. According to the Sheriff's Department, law enforcement confiscated one kilo of cocaine and over 5 pounds of marijuana at 803 1/2 Locust Ave. Using search warrants, the Sheriff's Office Drug Unit along with members of the Ohio Organized Crime Package Task Force and the U.S. Postal Service were also able to impound several vehicles from the scene. The Sheriff's Department says this search was part of a continuing investigation that included the seizure of more than $21,000 in cash that was intercepted in November of 2001. Niles and Perry are set to appear in court later this week.
