NEW LONDON — Village police recently executed its third drug-related search warrant this month.

Eight New London officers, including Chief Mike Marko, used a warrant about 10 p.m. Friday at 38 Aster Court. 

“We got some drug paraphernalia and possible methamphetamine that is going to be tested at the Mansfield crime lab,” Sgt. Seth Miracle said. “The homeowner was not there when we first got there. We made a traffic stop just after we made entry.”

The stop happened about a block from the residence.

Marko said some of the officers noticed a vehicle driving through a parking lot in front of 43-year-old Anthony J. Warner’s apartment. Warner was the back seat passenger.

“Drugs were found in the car,” Marko said.

Warner was charged with possession of drug paraphernalia and released.

“Felony charges are pending,” Miracle said.

Earlier this month, police used two separate search warrants to seize suspected heroin and drug paraphernalia from two residences in New London. The incidents happened three days apart.

About 6:15 p.m. Dec. 15 at 35 Westwood Drive, police have said they seized suspected heroin, several dug abuse instruments, paraphernalia and cell phones as evidence.

Donald S. Adams Jr., 33, of the same address, was arrested on two felony warrants, including a New London case involving the suspected theft of credit cards, Marko said. Adams then was transported to the Huron County Jail. He has been unable to post a $10,000 bond.

About 8:45 p.m. Dec. 13, police converged on 169 Coleman Court. Officers have said they located and seized suspected heroin, a digital scale, several syringes and other drug instruments.

Jonathan M. Pastel, 31, of the same address, was charged with possession of drug abuse instruments and released.
