Tallmadge police arrested three people and seized about 26 pounds of marijuana and more than $10,000 in cash while investigating complaints of drug trafficking.
Richard Price, 27, and Kenneth Price, 24, both of Tallmadge, and Curtis Albright, 21 of Akron, are charged with felony trafficking in marijuana and possession of marijuana.
Police say they were investigating complaints of drug activity around Broadview Road on March 19 and stopped a car carrying the three men. Officers say they detected a smell of marijuana inside the vehicle, prompting a search in which they found the drug wrapped in numerous packages.
The men were carrying a “large amount” of cash in their pockets and police later recovered an additional $10,900 and paraphernalia while searching Richard Price’s home on Broadview Road, officers said.
