COLUMBUS, Ohio (WCMH) — A Columbus man is facing charges after police seized multiple drugs and cash from an east Columbus home.

According to investigators, the Whitehall Division of Police Narcotics Unit and the Columbus Police Drug Enforcement Response Team executed a search warrant at a home on the 100 block of South Ashburton Road in Columbus as part of an investigation into methamphetamine trafficking in and around Whitehall.
