CUYAHOGA FALLS, OH (WOIO) - Police officers seize more than $700,000 during a drug bust.

On September 23, the Cuyahoga Falls Narcotics Unit executed a search warrant in the 2700 block of 10th Street.

Information had been developed that drug trafficking was occurring at that location.

As a result of the search, Scott Fogel, 46, was arrested that night and charged with drug trafficking.

Besides the cash, two cars and two motorcycles were seized that night.

Several financial accounts have also been frozen at this point.

Due to the large volume of cash, detectives sought the assistance of a local financial institution who provided equipment and personnel to assist in the counting of the funds.

After the count the funds were deposited into a special account where they will remain until the resolution of the case.

The total amount of cash seized was $762,537.72.

The investigation is ongoing, and further charges are possible.
