On 2 Mar 2023 Agents with the Southeast Major Crimes Task Force, Washington County Sheriff’s Office and WCSO Detective Bureau executed a search warrant at 236 Francis Road, Muskingum Township, resulting in the arrest of two individuals.

The search warrant was executed, finding digital scales, drug ledgers, multiple baggies, baggies with residue, multiple pills, cocaine, methamphetamine, cash and a firearm.

Agents located a bag of suspected methamphetamine (6.28 grams) in the master bedroom dresser where Felisha Casto and Corey Sapp were located.  A small rubber container with suspected cocaine (.07 grams) and a small plastic container with (3) three white oblong pills marked “G037” (Acetaminophen and Hydrocodone, a schedule II controlled substance), were found in a drawstring bag with (2) two identification cards for Corey Sapp also in dresser, separate from the methamphetamine.

A loaded 22 mag revolver, with (5) five rounds in the cylinder, was found in the dresser under Casto’s bras/undergarments.

Casto was advised of her Miranda Rights and acknowledged she sells cocaine and actually told agents she travels out of the county buying ounces of cocaine to sell in the area. Casto stated she actually sold all of the cocaine she had in Parkersburg, WV, the previous evening. When asked about the bag of methamphetamine found in the driver, Casto stated she was holding it for a friend.
