Ohio files drug charges against liquor permits

Posted: Updated:
COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - State investigators filed more than 200 drug-related administrative charges against liquor permits in Ohio last year.

The Ohio Investigative Unit says its agents filed 267 administrative charges against liquor permits for drug use, possession, sales and sales or possession of drug paraphernalia in 2013.

The state agency enforces Ohio's liquor laws and says allowing or even participating in illegal drug activity violates liquor permits.

Administrative charges are presented to the Ohio Liquor Control Commission. That group has the authority to issue penalties such as fines, suspensions or revocation of liquor permits.

Ohio Investigative Unit agents also investigate food stamp fraud crimes and tobacco violations.

The Ohio State Highway Patrol says officers are taking the extra precaution of using respirators to retrieve drugs from cars. A recent example was seen Wednesday afternoon outside a Dunkin Donuts on West Liberty Street in Weathersfield Township.
