FBI: Drug Bust In Massillon

Just under a dozen people are facing charges after the FBI and local law enforcement executed several search warrants in connection with a drug ring involving crystal meth in Massillon.

NewsChannel 5 reports Carlos Elias and his wife Lisa were arrested at a Lincoln Way NW home where five children were removed. The kids are now in the custody of a family member.

Authorities say Elias is the local distributor of the drugs -- importing about 2 to 5 pounds of crystal meth per month from California. The FBI says Elias purchases a pound of drugs for $2,400 and then sells it for $11,000 to $14,000. In total, 11 people will be charged. Other locations are being searched in Akron, Canton, Medina County, and Tuscarawas County.

It's Week 10 of the high school football season and Massillon and Canton McKinley are ready to hit the gridiron this weekend once again.

Chris Easterling from the Massillon Independent joined the Sam Bourquin Show to break down the matchup and talk about what's at stake for both teams in addition to bragging rights.


 McKinley has their playoff spot locked up, while Massillon needs a win to keep their season alive. The Tigers are coming off a tough loss to the Irish of St. Vincent-St. Mary, while McKinley is coming off a win over the Green Bulldogs.

Easterling says that both quarterbacks Seth Blankenship of the Tigers and Dominique Robinson of the Bulldogs will dictate this game, and whoever makes the most crucial throws and the fewest mistakes will lead his team to a victory at Tom Benson Hall of Fame Stadium.
