July 28—A Madison County grand jury last week indicted four people on controlled substance trafficking charges, while two others were indicted on charges of criminal conspiracy to traffick in more than eight ounces of marijuana.

In addition, four people were indicted on drug possession and other charges.

Two of the trafficking charges are Class C felonies, while the others are Class D felonies.

Kenneth Richard Turner, 30, of Berea, was indicted on one count of trafficking in more than 2 grams of heroin, a Class C felony, and three counts of trafficking in less than 2 grams of the illegal substance. The lesser amounts were sold to a confidential informant working for the Berea Police, according to the indictment.

Turner also was indicted on a misdemeanor drug paraphernalia possession charge.

Delilah J. Thomas, 32, of Richmond, was indicted on charges of first-degree trafficking (more than 2 grams of methamphetamine), a Class C felony, as well as misdemeanor charges of second-degree controlled substance possession (buprenorphine) and possession of marijuana and drug paraphernalia.

Michael Moren, 41, Richmond, is facing six charges, include being a second-degree persistent felony. He also was indicted on charges of first-degree controlled substance trafficking (heroin), first- and third-degree controlled substance possession (hydrocodone and clonezapam), evidence tampering and identify theft.

Bert A. Bandstra, 29, of Chattanooga, Tenn., was indicted on charges of controlled substance trafficking (less than 2 grams of methamphetamine), drug paraphernalia possession and driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs.

Tabitha L. Herbst, 40, and Anthony J. Lee, 27, both of Richmond, were indicted on charges of conspiracy to traffick in marijuana as well as misdemeanor marijuana possession charges.

In the same indictment, Jonathan W. Wolf, 48, was charged with being a convicted felon in possession of a handgun, five rifles and a shotgun as well as drug paraphernalia possession.

Joshua A. Bogie, 30, of Berea, was indicted on two counts of first-degree controlled substance trafficking (less than 2 grams of heroin and less than 10 units of oxycodone).

Others indicted on drug and other charges include:

—Angelia Kaye Bradley, 33, Livingston, Ky., first-degree controlled substance possession (methamphetamine), theft by unlawful taking, illegal possession of a legend drug and drug paraphernalia

—Taylor N. Benefiel, 20, Nancy, Ky., first-degree controlled substance possession (methamphetamine), second-degree disorderly conduct and public intoxication

—Michael G. Murphy, 26, Richmond, first-degree controlled substance possession (methamphetamine) and drug paraphernalia possession

—James M. Denny, 40, Richmond, first-degree controlled substance possession (heroin).

An indictment is not a finding of guilt, only that grand jurors believe the state has enough evidence to prosecute.
