Police: Habitual Drug Trafficker Arrested Again

Authorities say a man out on bond from two other drug trafficking investigations was arrested yet again in Fostoria.

The Seneca County Drug Task Force – METRICH Enforcement Unit says Richard Seaburn III was arrested after a search warrant was executed at his residence on West Lytle Street in Fostoria.

The task force says the search revealed suspected methamphetamine, pills, criminal tools, drug paraphernalia and other items indicative of drug trafficking.

Seaburn, 53, was out on bond for two previous drug trafficking investigations in which search warrants were executed, in June of 2021 and July of 2022.

“Mr. Seaburn is a perfect example of why we need stiffer penalties for habitual offenders,” said Fostoria Police Chief Gabe Wedge.

Chief Wedge encourages people to continue reporting suspicious activity to their local agencies.
