CAMPBELL, Ohio (WKBN) – Officers in Campbell arrested two people after a domestic violence call led them to finding numerous drugs and drug paraphernalia in their home Saturday morning.
Jason Carter, 37, and another woman were taken into custody by Campbell City Police. Carter is charged with domestic violence, drug paraphernalia, endangering children, having weapons while under disability, possession of drugs, tampering with evidence and drug trafficking.
Police responded to the home on Rosary Drive around 6:45 a.m. They received a 911 call from a young boy who said Carter was beating up his mother, and he was hiding upstairs.
When officers arrived, they found several people standing outside. The woman, who police said was visibly upset, told them she had just been fighting with Carter. They said her neck was red, scratched and bleeding.
Carter came out of the home and police said he had fresh blood on his shirt.
He said the woman was pregnant with his baby and acting “moody,” according to a police report.
As police were placing Carter in handcuffs, they said he threw a bag of suspected cocaine on the ground.
Police searched the home and found additional bags of suspected cocaine, pills, marijuana, drug paraphernalia, ammunition, a handgun and about $2,700 in cash. Officers said they found some of the items in a dryer.
They also found a bulletproof vest in Carter’s vehicle, according to the police report.
The woman told police she did not know anything about the drugs. Police will consider charging her after further investigation.
