VAN WERT — Ryan L. Schaadt, 33, of Van Wert didn’t plan on staying at the Van Wert County Correctional Facility. He was just visiting another inmate, after all.
When deputies saw Schaadt, they took him into custody on a felony indictment of trafficking in drugs, a fifth-degree felony.
During the arrest, deputies located multiple packages of suspected drugs and capsules containing powder believed to be drugs. These suspected drugs will be sent to the Ohio Bureau of Criminal Investigation for analysis at the crime lab. Once results from the lab are known, Van Wert County Sheriff Riggenbach said he expects additional charges to be filed.
Schaadt is scheduled for an arraignment in Van Wert Common Pleas Court on Wednesday.
