Ryan J. Haubert, 25, of Massillon, was arrested Wednesday by the Portage County Drug Task Force for drug trafficking.

Haubert allegedly sold an undisclosed amount of Suboxone pills to an undercover agent over the past several weeks, according to a task force release. The drug is a controlled substance commonly used to treat drug addiction.

Police arrested Haubert at the 2600 block of state Route 59 in Ravenna and seized an undisclosed amount of cash. He is charged with drug trafficking and possession of criminal tools.

According to Kent State’s Alumni Association website, Haubert graduated from Kent State as a business management major in 2010.

Haubert faces additional charges pending a review by a Portage County grand jury.

Correction: An earlier version of this story incorrectly stated that Haubert lived at Campus Pointe, based on information from a Portage County Sheriff’s department press release. Also, an earlier headline stated that Haubert was allegedly selling the drugs at Campus Pointe; he was actually arrested in Ravenna.
