A total of 16 suspects will face charges in connection with undercover operation

CAMBRIDGE, Ohio -- The Cambridge Police Department has arrested a half-dozen more suspects as part of its crackdown on drug trafficking in the city.

According to Chief Randy LePage, officers arrested six people indicted by the Guernsey County grand jury last week for drug trafficking and possession offenses. Those arrested include: 28-year-old David Scott Jones of Cambridge, who faces two counts of trafficking in heroin within a 1000 feet of a school or juvenile (F4) and one count of trafficking in heroin (F5); 65-year-old Charles Payton of Cambridge, arrested on two counts of trafficking in cocaine (F5); 26-year-old Jesse Hickman of Cambridge was arrested for trafficking in heroin (F5); 30-year-old Eric Webb Jr. of Cambridge, who was indicted for one count of possession of cocaine (F5) and one count of conveyance into a detention facility (F3); 28-year-old Autumn Oliver of Cambridge, indicted on one count of possession of heroin; and 40-year-old Troy McManaway of Cumberland, who was indicted for aggravated possession of drugs (F5).

Chief LePage said that the charges stem from an undercover buy-bust operation conducted by the police department in March. Under the supervision of Lt. Karl Milam, a newly-hired Cambridge Police officer was able to conduct hand-to-hand drug buys from suspects in the city. A total of 16 individuals will be charged with 23 separate felony charges as a result.

The additional suspects, all local residents, will be served with charges during the next several days.
