On April 18, 2012 at approx. 1:30pm Detectives from the Chillicothe Police Department went to 730 E. Water St. in response to complaints of possible drug activity taking place there. Detectives contacted the resident, Ervin Howard Jr., who gave them consent to search his residence for illegal drugs. Detectives observed grow lights in the basement of the house and could smell a strong odor of marijuana coming from the garage. Mr. Howard at that time requested that Detectives stop searching his property. Mr. Howard was then detained on the front porch of the residence while the Detectives obtained a search warrant. While waiting for the warrant Mr. Howard ran inside the house with Officers in pursuit refusing to listen to orders. He ran into the kitchen where he attempted to reach for a basket. He was then taken to the floor and secured in handcuffs after resisting arrest. After the warrant was obtained and signed by the judge Officers located cocaine inside the basket that Mr. Howard was attempting to grab.
