A man was arrested Friday morning following a raid on a house at 78 Sandusky St., Monroeville.

Officers from the Huron County Drug Task Force, including officers from Monroeville, Bellevue, New London and personnel from the Huron County Sheriff's Office took part in the raid.

(NOTE - To see pictures of the raid, click HERE.)

"This was part (of) an ongoing investigation through cooperation with other local law enforcement agencies," said Monroeville Police Chief Gary Lyons. "A search warrant was obtained and executed shortly at 7 a.m. (Friday) morning.

"Four white males were in the residence. All were released except for one person who is still being held (as of 3 p.m. Friday)."

Arrested was 20-year-old Kurt Fahler.

Fahler was charged with manufacturing psilocybin (also known as psychedelic mushrooms) within the vicinity of a school, which is a first-degree felony.

"The other three were released," Lyons said. "They still could be charged."

Among the evidence taken out of the house, Lyons said, were three pot plants, different pills, drugs and drug paraphernalia. A rifle also was taken from the house.

"We are going to test them and see what comes back," Lyons said. "Some looked like the magic mushrooms."

Two village employees were called in to help remove the evidence.

Lyons said officer Troy Kimball was in charge of the investigation.

"It is certainly important and it is good we remain vigilant," Lyons said. "Monroeville is susceptible (to drugs) just like any other village or city. It's not unique to Monroeville. ...We have to do our part to let people know it will not go on without repercussions.

"And this isn't over. We are still investigating."

Lyons said there was a lot of hard work and cooperation involved.

"It was a combination of good police work and good timing," he said. "It's part of a cooperative effort. We don't have the manpower to do it by ourselves. We need to get the help."

In my opinon

Come on people, 4 men in an apartment with in school distant's, psychedelic mushrooms, three pot plants, different pills, drugs and drug paraphernalia and a weapon, and no negative comments, wow a 17 year old shot and killed walking down the street and you all found all kinds of nasty stuff to comment on.

Eddie Blair is a drug addict thief that steals from his nieghbors and friends and anyone else. He has been in prison for drugs and theft and since he has gotten out about 6 months ago, he has stolen from his grandmas nieghbors, friends of his have tried to rob the people across the street from his grandma. Fannie Blair (grandma) lets him do as he pleases and lets him stay there and deal drugs. Her house has been raided, they just picked up someone there Friday evening and it is just a place where no one can be trusted. All the people that go there are thieves or liers or a long list of trash. They need to put Eddie back in prison and all his buddies too. A pimp would be a step up for this piece of trash. The Spring Streeters have started a "Street Watch" now because he has ruined a nice place to live. The Blairs just need to move. I don't think it's right that my friends should have to leave because of low lives such as these.

What does your comment from another post have to do with what In My Opinion's post is saying. What if these young men got high on drugs, took the riffle and started shooting at school kids if school was in session. There would be comments galore, but a black kid gets shot and killed walking down a street and it's his fault. Go figure!!

Well, it is a crime to walk while black in America! Wait a minute, no it's not! You are right, people should be outraged about this!

I don't think you have or you wouldn't keep posting get over it. I wonder if you would feel the same if it were your child?

@Deertracker..how refreshing to read a post from someone with a heart and sence of humanity.

My comment from another post has absolutely nothing to do with this one. I just want everyone to know Eddie & Ben Blairs' name so that when it is heard you and others will know to lock up everything in site so you don't get robbed. It worked. Now you will remember because of my post that means absolutely nothing to this one. Thank you.

Forreal.haha

The reason the comments aren't so bad on here is because it was a small amount of weed an a gun. But you can look at this man an tell he is country so he probably hunts rather that gang bangs which is what everyone in society assumes as soon as they here a weapon is involved. As for hurting children who every you are that said that your a joke! There are to many herion cases, murder cases and rape case out there now days to get all stressed over this!

YOU can look at some one in a tee shirt and baseball cap and tell he is country! I wear a hooded sweat shirt does that make me a gang banger? Or is it the color. Maybe you should ask the parents about the 20 yr old that killed their kids at Sandyhook if he was country. Also psychedelic mushrooms, drugs and drug related items, don't minimize it because he looks country!

This kid - he may be 19 and an adult by law but he's a kid - is country and I have no doubt he is NOT selling to any of the school kids or going to hurt anyone. Obviously his dumbass has made some real studip decisions, but that about it. Kurt was on the right track and doing really good - it's sad. I hope he gets back on the track. Now the other kids that live there and hang out there...I'm would NOT say the same about them.
