POLICE: Meth, cocaine and teen runaway found in Dayton ‘drug den’

DAYTON —  A city drug task force searching a Springfield Street home on Wednesday found methamphetamine, cocaine and a 15-year-old juvenile who was reported missing in January, according to police. 

Dayton police launched an investigation after receiving complaints about a “flop house” — a house where drugs are being distributed and drugs are being used, said Sgt. John Sullivan, of the Dayton Police Department Drug Enforcement Unit.

“It’s pretty decrepit conditions inside the residence,” Sullivan said. “There’s a bunch of junk inside we have to search through, however we have found evidence so far of both meth and cocaine inside the residence.”

Police report there have been thefts in area that may be attributed to illicit drug activity at the house.

Four, of five people, inside the home have been detained by police. 

No charges have been filed, but police say there is evidence inside the home. 

“We are still in the early stages of this investigation,” Sullivan said.
