LIMA, Ohio (AP) - Authorities say an ongoing investigation into heroin trafficking has led to charges against two northwest Ohio residents.
Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine’s statement says Lima residents Marvin Thomas and Anthony Duvernay were recently arrested after an investigation uncovered heroin with an estimated street value of $330,000.
Investigators allege 45-year-old Thomas and 39-year-old Duvernay were involved in bringing the drugs into Ohio from out of state to distribute locally.
An Allen County grand jury in Lima on Friday indicted both men on charges of engaging in a pattern of corrupt activity, trafficking in heroin, possession of heroin and illegal manufacture of drugs.
Thomas’ attorney Kenneth Rexford says his client will plead not guilty but said it was too early to comment further. Calls Tuesday to Duvernay’s attorney’s officer weren’t answered.
