SCRAP Team Makes Big Arrests In Battle Against Drugs

Posted: Updated:
LANCASTER, Ohio -

The Street Crimes Reduction and Apprehension Program (SCRAP) in Fairfield County has been hard at work for a few years now.

But team members learned that the once temporary program is now fully funded for 2013, and there are plenty of reasons to see why.

"Lancaster is kind of the epicenter of the drug activity here in Fairfield County," said Deputy Lyle Campbell of the SCRAP team.

Just two days ago, the team worked a house near Buckeye Lake and made an arrest, finding the suspect hiding near a water softener.

"When we pulled back the counter and looked down, he was there, hiding," Sgt. Rod Hamler said.

They work the streets, pulling over cars, doing searches, door knocks, many weeks they will make three or four drug-related arrests.

"I love the work we do, love the job in general, coming to work every day, not knowing what is going to happen. It is fulfilling when you take a dealer down or a drug house out of a community," Deputy Campbell said.
