YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) – Three men are facing drug charges following a drug raid on the city’s north side.
Slattery said they are usually able to seize drugs or cash but rarely both. If the suspects are convicted, the police can keep the money for a Law Enforcement Fund to benefit city and county law enforcement efforts. Last year, the Youngstown Police Department was able to keep $60,000 in drug forfeiture money.
“We’ll use it for vice issues as far as controlled drug buys and also police equipment,” Slattery said.
