HAMDEN — Two men were charged with drug charges at Lake Alma on Saturday.
On Sept. 5, the Vinton County Sheriff’s Office received a call about two intoxicated males in a vehicle at Lake Alma State Park.
Deputies arrived at the scene and found the vehicle in the parking lot of the picnic area.
The two males were detained, and both showed signs of being under the influence of possible narcotics. A deputy conducted a free-air sniff with K9 Maximus, who alerted of possible narcotics in the vehicle. A search of the vehicle reportedly found Methamphetamine, Black Tar Heroin, pills, a pipe, syringes and scales.
Joshua H. Simmonds, 39, and Larry A. Rice, 44, of Wellston were arrested without incident and taken to the Southeastern Ohio Regional Jail and charged with trafficking and possession of drugs and drug paraphernalia. A bond hearing was scheduled for Tuesday.
