Mid-Ohio Valley drug bust at medical waste disposal facility
(2007-11-16)
(WOUB) - Authorities in the Mid-Ohio Valley have made a major drug bust in connection to the theft of more than 250-thousand pills from a medical waste disposal facility.

Washington County Sheriff Larry Mincks says the street value of the pills is between 2 and 5 million dollars.

Mincks says the facility was responsible for destroying drugs, including some seized by law enforcement agencies...but a theft occurred...and someone connected to the facility resold the drugs.

The Parkersburg Narcotics Task Force and the Washington County Major Crimes Task Force have a press conference scheduled for this afternoon to talk about the bust.
