Police arrested Marcus Morgan, of Youngstown, on drug charges.

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) – Youngstown Police arrested a man Tuesday evening after they found baggies of drugs in his home on Saranac Avenue.

Marcus Morgan, 31, of Youngstown, is facing several drug charges, including drug trafficking.

Youngstown officers executed a search warrant at the home around 6:30 p.m. Tuesday. A police report claims they had to force open the front door because no one answered.

Upon entering, officers say they found and secured Morgan and his two children.

They discovered several individually packaged baggies of drugs, some pills and a digital scale, according to the police report.

The two children were released to their grandmother at the scene.

Morgan is scheduled to appear in court on Wednesday.
