TIFFIN, OH (Toledo News Now) -

Police in Seneca County are searching for two people after a 12-month drug investigation in Tiffin.

Prescription drugs, cocaine, and marijuana are all part of a growing problem in Seneca County, but after indicting five Tiffin residents, police are hoping they put a dent in the problem.

Tiffin Police have arrested Chad Brooks, Justin Carter and William Harper for numerous drug-related charges. They are still searching for Randall Brown and Justin Rosas.

"For the people that were buying their drug of choice from these individuals, you know they're going to have to find five more people to buy it from, and you know, we keep picking them off one by one and we can clean up the area," said Police Chief Fred Stevens.

The Seneca County drug task force, along with officers from the Tiffin Police and Seneca County Sheriff's Office joined together in a 12-month investigation to get these men off the street.

"People are just turning to something to make them feel better," Stevens said. "Meth is on the increase, cocaine is on the increase. And that's not just a county problem, it's a national problem."

The chief says the only way to keep drugs out of users hands is to arrest the people selling it. He asks that anyone with information on the whereabouts of Brown or Rosas call the police department at 419-447-2323.
