Bowling Green Police were active Tuesday and this morning, including making an arrest in a Drug Enforcement Agency meth investigation.
Major Tony Hetrick said that Tuesday Zakary L. Berkel, 20, Bowling Green, was arrested at 4:48 p.m. at the Bowling Green Post Office on a charge of possession of a controlled substance, a first-degree felony.
Berkel had reportedly had three kilograms of methamphetamine sent to him at the post office.
"He was making the pickup," said Hetrick. "We had information that this was happening."
The arrest is part of an investigation being carried out by the DEA.
Berkel was taken to the Wood County jail and vehicle was also confiscated.
"It's still open and active," said Hetrick. "We have an arrest but we're still working on it."
Police also made an arrest in the 100 block of South College around 11 p.m. Tuesday night.
Dionte Davis, 24, Cleveland, was arrested on a warrant from the Cleveland Police Department.
Davis was reportedly wanted for obstruction of justice in connection to a homicide investigation in that city.
"We've actually been looking for him," said Hetrick.
Also in the 100 block of South College, police this morning recovered photos reportedly taken recently from the Alpha Xi Delta sorority on the campus of Bowling Green State University.
Assisting BGSU Police in the investigation, officers obtained a search warrant for a house on the street and located the 1976 and 1977 member photos from the sorority around 5 a.m.
No arrests have yet been made in the matter, and it is still unclear how the photographs were taken from the sorority house.
