Posted: Updated:

NEWTON FALLS, Ohio - Arrests were made and a search was conducted after surveillance was conducted on known heroin houses in the city.

According to a release, investigators with the Trumbull Ashtabula Group Law Enforcement Task Force saw a vehicle leaving the area.

One of the passengers of the car, Derrin L. Lough, 21, was known to have felony warrants for tampering with evidence, resisting arrest and assault.

When the vehicle was stopped on Freedom Street, one of the passengers ran, ensuing a brief foot chase.

Three other occupants of the home were detained. During a search of one suspect, Justin Dean Balch, 21, dropped a syringe. After searching him, the task force found a small plastic bag holding what they believed was heroin.

Lough and Balch were both arrested and transported to the Newton Falls Police Station until they could be transferred to the Trumbull County Justice Center.

The release states that after the arrest, a "consent search" was conducted at the residence of the arrestees. Approximately 5 grams of suspected heroin, a scale, paraphernalia and other unknown drugs were found.

The items are being sent for testing. Charges will be filed in accordance with the results.
