A Washington Court House man was taken into custody after an execution of a search warrant Sunday night.
According to the Fayette County Sheriff’s Office, deputies executed a search warrant at about 7 p.m. Sunday in the 1100 block of Campbell Street following a covert drug investigation into the trafficking of heroin.
Deputies said that after they entered the home, 26-year-old Shane Cooper began experiencing a medical issue and was transported to the Fayette County Memorial Hospital.
