TIPP CITY — On Wednesday, the Miami County Sheriff’s Office’s Detectives Section, with the assistance of the Tipp City Police Department, served a search warrant at 1255 Sequoia Court, Apt. C, Tipp City, according to Sheriff Dave Duchak.

The search warrant was the culmination of a months-long investigation into the trafficking of cocaine, he said in a press release.

Duchak said evidence seized included approximately 1 1/2 pounds of cocaine, digital scales, cell phones, a loaded firearm and drug paraphernalia.
