On 06/29/17, at approximately 5:00 PM, Whitehall Police stopped and arrested Myron Colvin, age 43, at Country Club Rd & Livingston Ave for drug trafficking. A search warrant was served at his residence, 1282 Simpson Dr, where Whitehall narcotic detectives recovered 1,250 grams of cocaine, oxycodone pills, suboxone strips, and over $5,500 cash, believed to be proceeds from drug sales.
Colvin lives in Columbus but became the subject of a drug investigation when narcotic detectives observed him come into Whitehall multiple times in a short period to meet his clients and sell drugs. It appears neither the clients nor the drug dealer were from Whitehall but chose the location as a central meeting point.
Colvin has been charged with Possession of Drugs (F1) and more charges are possible in the future. He was turned over to the Franklin County Jail.
“Our narcotic detectives are currently working well over 100 drug targets. This should be a notice to drug dealers, if you bring your product into Whitehall, your name is on our list,” said Dep. Chief Dan Kelso.
