Staff Writer

A Piqua man was arrested for trafficking in heroin in a drug sting in Minster on Wednesday.

Members of the Auglaize / Mercer County Grand Lake Drug Task Force, Sheriff’s deputies, Sheriff’s detectives, Minster Police and New Bremen Police arrested Timothy A. Tron,  41, of Piqua on Wednesday after law enforcement officials allege Tron transported heroin to the village of Minster in order to sell it.  Approximately 1.5 grams of heroin was recovered.

The investigation into Tron was a month long investigation by the Grand Lake Drug Task Force.

“This is proof that the heroin problem affects all areas of this county," Auglaize County Sheriff Al Soloman said. " It is brought here and sold to our citizens and we are doing all we can to stop it.  The Drug Task Force and Deputies on patrol are constantly working the drug problem in this county.”

Tron is currently held in the Auglaize County Correctional Facility.
