Logan Chilcote


A Findlay man was arrested Thursday in Napoleon on drug charges following the issuance of a search warrant resulting from a previous incident a couple weeks ago.

According to the Napoleon Police Department, Logan Chilcote, 29, was arrested after a search warrant was executed for an apartment in the 200 block of Northcrest Drive.

Officers initially attempted a knock and talk concerning an incident from Oct. 3 in which officers attempted to stop a vehicle for a traffic infraction that occurred on Scott Street. During that stop, the operator exited the vehicle and fled on foot. The suspect was later identified as Chilcote.

It was discovered he had various active warrants out for his arrest, including those from Wood, Seneca and Fulton counties.

On Thursday, officers became aware Chilcote was at a Napoleon apartment. After their knocks went unanswered, a warrant was obtained. Chilcote was then taken into custody without incident.

During a search of the residence, more than 200 grams of alleged methamphetamine and 14 grams of alleged cocaine were found. The street value is estimated at $10,500.

Chilcote was charged with trafficking of a schedule 1 or 2 controlled substance, a first-degree felony; trafficking in cocaine, a third-degree felony; and obstruction of official business, a fifth-degree felony. More charges may be issued in the future.

Also assisting at the scene were Ohio Adult Parole Authority, Henry County Prosecutor’s Office and Henry County Sheriff’s Office.
