Three Arrested, Indicted In Columbus Heroin Raid

The arrests were made after an investigation into drug trafficking in the Dublin Area

A joint effort by multiple police agencies have led to the arrest of three people in connection with heroin distribution in Franklin and Delaware counties.

Police were able to obtain a search warrant on Valley Ridge at the Fountain Place Apartments after an investigation into a drug trafficking organization.

Anselmo Magallanez Robles, Tomas Heriberto Martinez and Claudia Santos Hernandez were arrested and indicted on Drug Possession and Drug Trafficking charges.

A significant amount of heroin ready for sale and cash were sized by authorities in the April 22 search.

The investigation was done by the Dublin Police Community Impact Unit and the Delaware County LEAP Drug Task Force. They were assisted by the Columbus Police INTAC Unit.

“This result is a great example of the successes that come from the cooperative efforts of local law enforcement,” Dublin Police Chief Heinz von Eckartsberg said.
