FAIRFIELD, Ohio  – Two women were arrested after the Butler County Sheriff’s Office in Ohio says they were caught bringing crystal meth from Georgia County to Butler County. Both Lori Strasser and Brenda Dungan were charged with drug trafficking and possession and may face additional charges pending further investigation.

The sheriff’s office got a tip about the women’s location and drug agents found them in Fairfield.  Agents confiscated more than a quarter pound of meth hidden in Combos wrappers and $1,000 in cash. The sheriff’s office says the drugs are worth about $30,000.

Says Sheriff Jones, “We have competitors telling on each other which is good for our business, people are tired of this stuff, it affects everyone. We are happy to intercept the drugs and the criminals bringing them here.”
