A Garfield Heights man has been indicted on seven counts for drug and weapons charges, the U.S. Attorney's Office, Northern District of Ohio, announced on Tuesday.
29-year-old Tyrone Cammon faces charges of possession with intent to distribute heroin, carfentanil, fentanyl, and fentanyl analogues. He also is charged with using a firearm in relation to drug trafficking and being a felon in possession of a firearm.
According to U.S. Attorney Justin Herdman, Cammon possessed fentanyl for distribution on April 9, 2016, as well as a firearm he used in relations to his drug trafficking, according to the indictment. He possessed heroin and more than 12 grams of methoxyacetylfentanyl, carfentanil and fentanyl pharmacophore for distribution.
Cammon possessed two Glock .40 caliber pistols and a FNH 5.7x28mm pistol at various times in March 2016, April 2016 and November 2017, despite three previous convictions for drug trafficking, a previous conviction for assault and a previous conviction for attempted tampering with evidence, according to the indictment.
“This defendant sold the same drugs that have killed thousands of our friends and relatives and illegally carried a firearm as part of his drug trafficking,” Herdman said in a statement.
The investigation in the case was done by the Lakewood and Cleveland Police Departments, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms, and the U.S. Marshals office.
