A Franklin County judge rules cocaine evidence will be admissible in Dennis Huston's upcoming embezzlement trial.

Huston, who was an administrator at the county's Public Works Department, is accused of stealing $1.7 million of public money.

This morning, his attorney argued that Huston did not give police permission to search his belongings which allegedly contained cocaine.

But the judge ruled Huston was under arrest at the time and police had the authority to search those items.

Huston's trial is scheduled to begin in March.
