On 16 Jun 2021 Agents with the Major Crimes Task Force and Washington County Special Response Team executed a search warrant at 112 Knox Street, Apt. 23, Marietta, Washington County, Ohio.

Agents encountered Mageed Dunor, Heather Thompson and three other subjects.

After securing the residence, a small baggie containing an off-white substance was observed on a window seal, in the immediate vicinity of Mageed Dunor.  The baggie was in plain view and later found to weigh 9.75 grams, testing positive for fentanyl.
