Four individuals from Lorain were arrested Tuesday afternoon by Huron County sheriff’s deputies for selling suspected crack cocaine.
Brandon R. Taylor, 24, Kenneth E. MeGill, 47, Leandra M. Kimbro, 26, and Misty R. Brock, 32, all are in custody at the Huron County Jail.
Detective Sgt. Josh Querin said according to information provided by Detective Eric Bardar, these four individuals were traveling to the Wakeman area to sell suspected crack cocaine.
Their vehicle was stopped on U.S. 20 by Sheriff Dane Howard, Special Deputy Dave Battles, Chief Deputy Ted Patrick, Sgt. Tod Wagner, Bardar, detectives Bill Duncan and Kayla Zander,
Deputy Rich Larson and members of the Wakeman police department.
“When the four individuals were leaving the Wakeman area, they were stopped and arrested after the alleged drug transaction took place,” Querin said.
“A significant amount of crack cocaine and about $640 was confiscated,” he added.
“We towed the vehicle from the scene and since it is paid off, we will file for forfeiture of the vehicle through the court,” Querin said. “That vehicle will then be used for unmarked, undercover investigations or sold to continue funding drug investigations.
“I’d really like to commend Detective Bardar for his work on this investigation,” Querin said.
Sheriff Dane Howard said there is suspicion that the drugs the individuals sold were counterfeit.
“We’ll let the lab results certify our suspicions,” Howard added. “It’s still the same level of charge.”
