11 charged after Ottawa Co. Drug Task Force roundup | Ohio Task Force Commanders Association

Seven men and four women face drug-related charges after a roundup by the Ottawa County Drug Task Force last weekend.

According to Ottawa County Prosecutor Mark Mulligan, the roundup of those accused of drug-related offenses culminated in 11 people being arrested since Friday.

Mulligan said the charges resulted from a three-month operation by the Drug Task Force, during which a variety of  street and prescription drugs allegedly were sold to confidential informants.

The cases recently were presented to an Ottawa County grand jury, which returned the following indictments:

  • Rebecca E. Young, 34, 4100 block of East State Road in Port Clinton, was charged with two counts of permitting drug abuse, fifth-degree felonies, allegedly involving cocaine and suboxone.
  • Jessica R. Hurst, 24, 1000 block of Lake Street in Gypsum, was charged with three counts of trafficking in drugs, fourth-degree felonies, allegedly involving the sale of oxycodone on three separate occasions.
  • Megan A. Frye, 25, 1100 block of West Fremont Road in Port Clinton, was charged with one count of complicity to traffic in drugs, a fifth-degree felony, allegedly involving the sale of cocaine.
  • Jacob J. Carrisales, 22, of Tiffin, was charged with one count of trafficking in drugs, a fifth-degree felony,  allegedly involving the sale of marijuana.
  • Jordan W. Bulger, 24, of Fremont, was charged with three counts of trafficking in drugs, two fifth-degree felonies and one fourth-degree felony, with one specification that the offense was committed near a juvenile. Bulger is accused of selling cocaine.
  • Destinie M. Fletcher, 22, 1100 block of West Fremont Road in Port Clinton, was charged with one count of permitting drug abuse, a fifth-degree felony, allegedly involving heroin.
  • Bryant L. Boyd, 39, of Toledo, was charged with five counts of trafficking in drugs, three fifth-degree felonies, one fourth-degree felony due to the reported quantity of drugs and one specification that the offense was committed near a juvenile. Boyd is accused of selling heroin.
  • Christopher C. McDonald, 31, 300 block of Superior Court in Port Clinton, was charged with two counts of trafficking in drugs, one fifth-degree felony and one fourth-degree felony, with one specification that the offense was committed near a juvenile. McDonald is accused of selling cocaine.
  • Dexter J. Havens, 52, 4100 block of East State Road in Port Clinton, was charged with one count of trafficking in drugs, a fifth-degree felony, allegedly involving the sale of cocaine.
  • Stanley L. Holmes, 26, 200 block of North Strause Lane in Marblehead, was charged with one count of trafficking in drugs near a juvenile, a fourth-degree felony, allegedly involving heroin.
  • Jason Hicks, 34, who is in the Erie County Detention Facility, was charged with three counts of trafficking in drugs, fifth-degree felonies, allegedly involving the sale of cocaine and suboxone on separate occasions.

The Ottawa County Sheriff’s Office, Port Clinton, Fremont and Sandusky police  and the Seneca County Drug Task Force all assisted the Ottawa County Drug Task Force in making the arrests.

All of the suspect were expected to appear in Ottawa County Common Pleas Court on Monday, other than Carrisales and Hicks. Carrisales was arraigned Friday. Hicks faces pending charges in Erie County.

An indictment is a formal charge filed in common pleas court and is not a determination of guilt or innocence.
