HANOVER TOWNSHIP, Ohio -- Four men were arrested and several illegal drugs were seized during a search warrant at a Hanover Township home Monday evening. 

Butler County agents, Hamilton police detectives and a Butler County SWAT team began their search of the home at about 4 p.m., when they found small amounts of ingredients used to make methamphetamine. They confiscated the drugs and arrested 39-year-old Brian Polly, Butler County Sgt. Monte Mayer reported. 

Inside Polly's home in the 3000 block of Lanes Mill Road, authorities found meth, pseudoephedrine and oxycodone. They found no evidence that meth was made at the home, Mayer said.

Polly was charged with felony counts of illegal possession of chemicals used to make drugs, trafficking and possession.

Mayer said authorities made three more arrests at the home. J. Chancey Dougherty, 38, of Monroe was arrested and charged with illegal possession of chemicals used to make drugs, and 33-year-old Joshua Rhodus of Hamilton was charged with felony possession.

The fourth man arrested Monday, 39-year-old Thomas Fisher, had an outstanding warrant from Hamilton County, but was not charged in connection with the other three men, or on any drug charges.

Additional charges may be filed as the investigation continues, Mayer said.
