WAPAKONETA The Auglaize/Mercer County Grand Lake Drug Task Force arrested 13 people Monday morning on drug-related charges.The arrests were part of a six-month investigation, which yielded arrests on 35 counts of trafficking in marijuana for suspects living in Celina, Lima, St. Marys and Wapakoneta. Officers also confiscated a “substantial” amount of marijuana and money, Auglaize County Sheriff Al Solomon said in a press release.“With the other dangerous drugs out there that are far more powerful and harmful, marijuana is sometimes looked at as non-harmful,” Solomon said. “But it is still illegal to sell, possess or use. It is still dangerous, as any police officer would tell you marijuana is a lot of times the first step into the progression into more dangerous drugs.”Those arrested included:• Gunnar H. Allman, 20, of Wapakoneta, on three counts trafficking in marijuana.• Lea R. Barnett, 39, of Wapakoneta, on four counts trafficking in marijuana.• Louis J. Hendricks, 23, of Celina, on one count trafficking in marijuana.• Jaron Kanorr, 23, of Wapakoneta, on one count trafficking in marijuana.• Cameron M.
