Athens County Sheriff Pat Kelly says the Narcotics Enforcement Team and the Special Response team arrested three Athens County residents after a search of a Buchtel residence turned up evidence of trafficking in heroin.
Kelly says seven unit doses of heroin, syringes and other drug paraphernalia were seized.
Those arrested were 20-year-old Melissa Estep, 29-year-old Matt Long both of Buchtel and 21-year-old Erik Hook of Glouster.
In a Friday morning news release, Kelly said he expects to present counts of trafficking in heroin to a future grand jury.
