Two men arrested Monday in connection with a drug bust were arraigned Tuesday.
Eric Townsend and Michael Broadnax were in Marietta Municipal Court Tuesday afternoon.
They were arrested Monday after police say an informant made a controlled buy of crack cocaine from the suspects.
Townsend and Broadnax are both charged with drug trafficking.
Their bond has been set at $35,000 each.
Washington County Sheriff Larry Mincks says the men were selling drugs out of Columbus and Detroit, which is an ongoing problem.
"They know they can get higher prices, and so they're coming down here, and we are continuing to do what we can to stop them," Sheriff Mincks said.
Townsend and Broadnax's preliminary hearings are set for June 17th.
