BATH TOWNSHIP, Ohio (WKEF/WRGT) - Authorities have arrested a man after they say 90 packages of meth were found wrapped in duct tape inside his Greene County home.

The Greene County Sheriff's Office received a tip on Sunday, October 21, that there were possibly drugs being stored inside a home in Bath Township.

The Agencies for Combined Enforcement Task Force obtained a search warrant for the apartment and inside found it to be a "stash house." There were very few personal items inside the three bedroom home, authorities say. The drugs, which were wrapped in duct tape inside a bath tub of the home were taken to the crime lab to be analyzed and tested positive for meth. In all, authorities seized 94 pounds and 5 ounces of meth, one of the largest seizures in Ohio and the largest in Greene County history.

A.C.E Task Force says cases for trafficking in meth have risen 813% in the first nine months of 2018 compared to 2017.

The suspect, Michael Bailey, 30, has been arrested and indicted on 1 counts of Aggravated Trafficking in Drugs, 1 count of Aggravated Possession of Drugs and 2 counts of Possession of Criminal Tools. Bailey is being held in the Greene Co. Jail on $100,000 bond.
