Two suspected drug dealers arrested in Portage County

RAVENNA, Ohio - Deputies in Portage County arrested two men they said have been selling drugs in the area.

Christopher Bly, 33, of Garrettsville, and Charles Stephenson, 40, of Akron, were taken into custody Thursday by the county's drug task force.
