Cleveland man accused of selling heroin in Wickliffe while out on bond in separate drug case

A Cleveland man, while out on bond for previous drug trafficking charges in Cuyahoga County, was arrested for allegedly selling heroin in Wickliffe on Monday.

At about 2 p.m., with the help of the Lake County Narcotics Agency and the Euclid Police Department, the Wickliffe Police Department arrested 20-year-old Davaunte M. Livest after a monthlong investigation, said Wickliffe Police Detective Lt. Pat Hengst.

Livest, of 1713 Cliffview Road, was charged with fifth-degree felony trafficking in heroin and fifth-degree felony possession of criminal tools for a Samsung cell phone, according to Willoughby Municipal Court records.

Magistrate Judge Almis Stempuzis set bond at 10 percent of $25,000 and a preliminary hearing has been set for Monday.

In October, as part of a major heroin ring bust in Cleveland and Euclid,Livest was indicted on state drug charges and identified as being affiliated with the Lakeshore Boyz gang.

Facing two charges of drug trafficking and one count of drug possession in Cuyahoga County Common Pleas Court, Livest posted bond for that case on Oct. 30.
