Looks like he was selling more than slush puppies...

The carry out we used to live across the street from made the news. I went there a few times a week with Aubrey and never even had a reason to suspect drug sales were going on.

A Springfield Township carry-out owner was arrested by the Toledo Metro Drug Task Force this morning after authorities said he was selling prescription drugs and cocaine out of his North McCord Rd. store. Guirguis Ragheb, 34, 3290 County Road J, Swanton, was charged with 12 counts of trafficking in drugs during a bust about 6:30 a.m. at the store, Chablis Quick Stop at 1801 North McCord.

The arrest comes after a more than year-long investigation by the Toledo Metro Drug Task Force, in which authorities purchased drugs over the counter. Authorities also found additional drugs and between $40,000-$50,000 at the store during a search this morning.

Only thing that comes to mind is the carry out was robbed shortly before we moved and I thought the large amount of cash that was listed as stolen was pretty high for a carry out.
