Torrance Walker, of Alpharetta, was arrested in Ohio and faces a felony charge.

When police in Chillcothe, Ohio conducted a search warrant at a house last weekend, they found cash and drugs, and arrested an Alpharetta man.

Torrance Walker, 39, was charged with tampering with evidence and a second-degree felony count of possession of heroin.

Officials with the Chillcothe Police Department and the Ross County Sheriff’s Office said he is no longer being held in either of their jails. The Atlanta Journal-Constitution has requested more information on Walker’s arrest and his mugshot.



Police also arrested a Michigan man at the scene who was taken to the hospital after he punched through a second floor window, according to a report from the Chillcothe Gazette. The man, Nathaniel Powe Jr., knocked the window out, injuring his arm, and threw drugs to the ground below.

Police seized $5,700 in cash, three ounces of heroin and an ounce each of cocaine and marijuana from the scene.

Walker and Powe were arrested as the result of a search warrant from a drug investigation that was executed by the Chillcothe SWAT team, according to an incident report.

According to that report, Walker was found in a bathroom on the second floor of a residence. Police said he did not speak, and his Georgia ID, two cell phones and $1,338 in cash was found on him.

Online court records do not show any recent arrests of Walker in Fulton County.
