Law enforcement seized 70 grams of 70 grams of fentanyl, 1 kilogram of cocaine, a half-ounce of crack cocaine and 1 pound of marijuana during a drug raid Thursday in Hamilton, Butler County Sheriff Richard K. Jones announced.

Henry Allen Thompson III, 46, was arrested during a search warrant execution in the 1300 block of Hensley Avenue. Officials also seized $40,000, multiple firearms and a ballistic vest.

Thompson is charged through Hamilton Municipal Court with possession of drugs, a first-degree felony, and having weapons under disability, a third-degree felony.

Jones says he has been focused on the issue of fentanyl, which he recently called “the silent pandemic” in a podcast he hosts. Two milligrams of fentanyl is lethal, Jones said.

“We will continue the fight to keep fentanyl and other drugs out of our community,” Jones said in a news release.
