VINTON COUNTY, Ohio (WSAZ) -- Three men were arrested on drug charges following the search of a home in Hamden, according to the Vinton County Sheriff’s Office.

Roger Boyer, 27, the homeowner, Clay Morris, 28, of Dundas, Ohio, and Travis Howard, 25, of Columbus, were charged with drug trafficking, drug abuse and possession of drugs.

Sheriff Shawn Justice say deputies executed the search warrant Monday following a lengthy investigation into alleged narcotics violations.

The three men were taken to Southeastern Ohio Regional Jail.

Additional charges could be presented to a grand jury.

A bond hearing is set for Thursday in Vinton County Court.
