The press release says the Ohio Highway Patrol made a traffic stop Saturday night which resulted in information being passed onto the Mason County Sheriff's Department. As a result the department was able to obtain a search warrant and execute the search warrant Sunday morning. The warrant search resulted in 20 grams of crack cocaine, several thousand dollars in cash and a pistol being seized.

Sheriff Scott Simms says he considers this a major drug bust. Simms went on to say that he considers "Big Baby" a big player in the crack cocaine drug trade in Mason County.
