A domestic incident in the Town of McKenzie turned into a substantial drug bust for the Butler County Sheriff’s Office Thursday.

According to Sheriff Danny Bond, deputies arrested a white male and booked him with a laundry list of charges, all stemming from a 911 call.

“He left before deputies arrived, but was located shortly thereafter” Bond said.
