Cash, drugs recovered in Winchester bust

Winchester Police in conjunction with the Adams County Prosecutor and Brown County Drug and Major Crimes Task Force executed a search warrant at a residence in Winchester that yielded hundreds in prescription narcotics, firearms, and $24,000 in cash.

Mt. Orab K-9 Officer Michael Dearing responded to a call of a reckless operator heading down Route 32 from the east, Upon further investigation of the traffic stop, Dearing found narcotics in the car. The suspect cooperated with authorities and told them he had purchased the narcotics in Winchester earlier that evening.

“There was a vehicle called in as a reckless operator traveling at a high rate of speed headed down 32 from the Winchester area,” Mt. Orab Chief Bryan Mount said. “Officer Dearing is on duty and intercepts the call and was able to make a traffic stop. From the traffic stop, we obtained drugs and information.”

That information, led to a search warrant being issued. At approximately 11:48 a.m. on Thursday Jan. 28 officers searched the residence of Victoria Saylor and Udorise “Bob” Saylor where the contraband was recovered. According to Winchester Lt. Rich Shofstall, the warrant was obtained through an ongoing investigation by the prosecutor’s office.

“No one was physically taken to the jail at that point,” Winchester Police Chief David Benjamin said.

Benjamin said there were reasons as to why no arrests were made.

“There are a couple of different reasons actually,” Benjamin said. “One, the case ended up being a little more than what we first expected. Instead of just being a possession charge or one trafficking charge, it looks like we are going to have multiple trafficking charges. If we took them to jail it would start our clock running and I’m not sure how long it is going to take to conclude the entire investigation. Number two: The suspects do have ailments and physical disabilities and we weren’t sure how that would go if we had to take them to jail that night.”

Pending charges against the Saylors include drug trafficking with firearms specification, permitting drug abuse, and possessing criminal tools. Benjamin said as many as 30 trafficking charges may be filed.
