STREETSBORO: A Highland Hills man was charged this week with third-degree trafficking in drugs and possession of drugs charges by the Portage County Drug Task Force.

Charles Austin, 31, was arrested Monday at the Holiday Inn Express, 9459 state Route 14, Streetsboro, after authorities say they received a tip about a large package of narcotics being delivered to the location from a business on the West Coast.

Austin is accused of checking in, paying for his room and picking up the package. He allegedly was leaving when he was stopped by authorities. The task force said they seized about 30 pounds of suspected marijuana.
