CAMBRIDGE, Ohio — The Cambridge Police Department executed two search warrants, resulting in four arrests, early Friday morning.
Police detectives say the pair of raids took place at an apartment on Meadowpark Drive and at a home in the 500 block of Gomber Avenue. Officers, following up on reports of drug activity at both locations, reportedly recovered a large quantity of methamphetamine in ICE form, along with digital scales, cellular phones, ledgers and syringes believed to have been used for drug trafficking.
Police also recovered suspected heroin and a number of ladies’ watches, believed to be stolen, from the Gomber Avenue residence.
Of the four suspects taken into custody, three are expected to face charges in connection with Friday morning’s raids. A 32-year-old female, 43-year-old male and 21-year-old male, all Cambridge residents, may face charges that include: possession of methamphetamine; trafficking in methamphetamine; possession of criminal tools and receiving stolen property. All three remain in custody.
Anyone who believes they have had a woman’s watch stolen over the past few weeks is urged to contact the Cambridge Police at 740.439.4431 to see if their watch has been recovered.
Friday’s drug raid marks the 16th search warrant executed by the Cambridge Police Department since early December and its fourth in the last six days.
Methamphetamine (ICE) related cases have become the current primary focus for investigators in the city. Cartel sourced ICE from Columbus and Cleveland is now the drug of choice in the area, replacing heroin and homemade methamphetamine. Police say the reason for the upswing in ICE is believed to be cost, availability and popularity among drug user. Heroin is still prevalent as well, with fentanyl being added to the majority of heroin batches coming from urban areas. The drug composition is based on recent BCI Lab results.
