Three Columbus area men nabbed in Ironton drug bust

Three alleged dope peddlers were arrested and more than 90 grams of crack cocaine were seized Monday during a raid in Ironton.

Kanton Talley, 21, Dewayne Foster, 22, and Christopher Prince, 23, are charged with felony possession of crack cocaine. Lawrence County Sheriff Tim Sexton said the trio may face other charges, too.

Sheriff's deputies and members of the county drug task force stopped the three in the 2600 block of South Eighth Street after undercover operations confirmed their involvement in drug activity. In addition to the cocaine, $1,000 cash and a loaded .25-caliber handgun were also seized.
