Arrested at his home was Jason M. French, who has been charged with aggravated possession of drugs, a fifth-degree felony. Police believe the drugs allegedly seized to be opiate-based prescription medications.
French was arrested during execution of a "low-profile" search warrant, the release said.
Further investigation is expected to result in more charges, the release added.
As of Wednesday, French had apparently made an initial appearance in Athens County Municipal Court, and was being held in the regional jail in Nelsonville.
