Pot bust nets 164 pounds, two arrests



The Cincinnati Enquirer

MOUNT AUBURN - Two men were arrested on drug charges Wednesday after Regional Narcotics Unit agents said they saw them loading boxes containing 76.5 pounds of marijuana into their car.

Torry Jordan, 30, of the 200 block of Magnolia Street, Over-the-Rhine, and Paul Leary, 36, of the 2700 block of Harrison Avenue, Westwood, both were charged with drug trafficking and drug possession, the Hamilton County Sheriff's Office said.

Agents observed the two men remove the boxes from an apartment in the 1900 block of Bigelow Street, place them in their car and drive away, the sheriff's office said. The officers stopped and arrested the two men in the 900 block of Ringgold Street about 11 a.m.

An investigation determined the marijuana had been delivered at the Bigelow Street address by a parcel service earlier Wednesday, the sheriff's office said.

An additional 87.5 pounds of marijuana that was sent by the same method to a location in Springfield Township was intercepted, authorities said.
