Ohio bodycam footage shows suspects hiding in unusual places — including a clothes dryer — during last week’s Elyria drug bust.
Officers from the Elyria Police Department arrested seven suspects on May 6 after Brandon Sherrill was seen fleeing a home on Kenyon Avenue.
Sherrill had an outstanding warrant in his name, prompting the officers to enter the home and inspect the property.
Police officials said suspects Stephanie Price, Michael McCloskey, Autumn Eggers, Jason Smith and Sherrill were all taken into custody.
Two other suspects were arrested for drug-related crimes: Inn King and Michael Major. King has been charged with felony possession of fentanyl and methamphetamine, while Major was charged with possession of methamphetamine and drug paraphernalia.

As the lessee tenant of the home, Major was also accused of allowing drug abuse in the home. When they reached the house, the Major allowed the officers to enter the house.
As officers searched the house, the suspects’ unusual hiding places were gradually revealed: Smith was found under blankets in the basement and Price was hiding in the attic. Sherrill is found hiding under the basement stairs.
