TROY — The Miami County Sheriff’s Office conducted a drug related search warrant in the Kings Chapel neighborhood, at 2407 Waterford Drive, Troy, on Tuesday. The warrant was executed as part of an investigation for possession and sale of cocaine.
Ashley M. Cowen, 35, of Troy, was arrested and charged with second-degree felony trafficking drugs and possession of drug paraphernalia, a fourth-degree misdemeanor.
As a result of the search, numerous bags of suspected cocaine were seized, which were packaged for distribution, according to a press release from the Miami County Sheriff’s Office. Additionally, weighing scales, pills, drug paraphernalia, cellular telephones, and $4,509 were seized as evidence of drug trafficking.
The case continues to be investigated, and additional charges may be presented to the Miami County Prosecutor.
According to the search warrant obtained by Miami Valley Today, the Miami County Sheriff’s Office began an investigation of Cowen’s activities in November 2017 at the Waterford Drive property. Evidence collected by detectives tested positive for cocaine in field tests.
The investigation stemmed from the United States Postal Service postal investigation of a package with multiple pounds of marijuana to be delivered to the Waterford Drive in Troy from California in November 2017.
Cowen was not incarcerated on the charges.
