Location changed for

Millbury NW meeting

        Members of Millbury Neighborhood Watch will meet Wednesday, Feb. 20, at 7 p.m. at a new location.

        Meetings are normally conducted at St. Peter’s UCC Church in Millbury, but due to a small fire that recently occurred at the church, another meeting place was sought.

        “We reached out to Pastor Mark Kuhlman at St. Paul’s United Methodist Church in Millbury, and he was gracious enough to allow us to meet there,” said Ron Craig, Lake Township Police Department’s crime prevention and community policing officer.

        St. Paul’s is located at 1459 South St. (SR 795) in Millbury, near the intersection with Main Street.

        “We really appreciate having been able to meet at St. Peter’s, but until they are able to resolve the fire damage there, we will have to hold our February meeting elsewhere,” Craig said.

        For more details, call 419-481-6354.

Drugs, gun seized

        Ohio State Highway Patrol troopers filed felony drug charges against two Florida men after a traffic stop in Wood County. During the traffic stop, troopers seized more than four pounds of cocaine worth $84,000 and a loaded .380 handgun.

        On Feb. 5, at 3:43 p.m., troopers stopped a rented 2018 Ford F-150 with Florida registration for speeding and lane change violations on the Ohio Turnpike. Criminal indicators were observed and the driver was asked to exit the vehicle. During a consensual pat-down, a loaded .380 handgun was found on the driver. A search of the vehicle revealed the contraband.

        The driver, Nelson Lopez III, 21, and passenger, Nelson Lopez Jr., 41, both of Zephyrhills, Fla., were incarcerated in the Wood County Jail and charged with possession and trafficking in cocaine, both first-degree felonies.

        If convicted, each could face up to 22 years in prison and up to a $40,000 fine.
