LODI: Authorities seized a half ounce of cocaine, nearly 4 pounds of marijuana contained in 50 individual packages, 131 individual packages of THC, a small amount of methamphetamine and more than $19,000 in cash last week during a drug search at a home in the 100 block of Howe Street.

The Medina County Drug Task Force announced the details Thursday.

Authorities had been conducting surveillance on the house after receiving complaints of suspicious activity.

Esker Castro, 36, of Lodi has been charged with possession of cocaine. Corey Deters, 27, of Wooster, who was stopped while driving away from the house, was also charged with possession of cocaine.

Additional charges are pending against Castro, authorities said.
