CAMBRIDGE, Ohio -- A Byesville man arrested as part of a drug buy-bust operation in December pleaded "guilty" in Guernsey County Common Pleas Court on Wednesday.
Court records show that 19-year-old Jarrod Dylan Brown was indicted on a felony-four count of trafficking in heroin earlier this year. The Byesville Police Department arrested Brown in the parking lot of a Byesville business in December after Brown sold heroin to a confidential informant. Chief Jason May said the arrest came after a sustained investigation by the police department.
Brown will appear before Judge David A. Ellwood for sentencing on August 11.
Another Byesville man was sentenced for an unrelated drug offense earlier this week. Twenty-eight-year-old Robbie L. Stevens was arrested as part of a separate controlled buy-bust in December. Chief May told AVC News late last year that Stevens sold morphine pills to an undercover officer in Byesville, an offense that took place within 1,000 feet of a school.
On Monday, Judge Ellwood sentenced Stevens to 15 months imprisonment on a felony-three count of aggravated trafficking in drugs. Stevens is in custody in the Guerney County Jail.
