Muskingum County Sheriff Matt Lutz says two people are in custody after a drug investigation Wednesday that included a chase in Putnam. Sheriff Lutz says around 2:00 pm deputies were doing a drug investigation when a suspect – on Moxahala Avenue - took off running from deputies and ended up hiding in the Muskingum County Community Foundation Office. Deputies were able to arrest that 27-year-old male suspect and also have a 17-year-old female in custody for questioning. A third suspect, a black male – fled the scene. Lutz did not release any names, but the case remains under investigation and the case will be taken to the County Prosecutor for possible charges.
