A 24-year-old Cuyahoga Falls man is facing felony drug charges after law enforcement officials took him into custody on Tuesday, July 29.
Lucian Neiman Sheppard is charged with two counts of trafficking in drugs (both a first-degree felony and a third-degree felony) and with possession of drugs, a second-degree felony.
On Tuesday at 1:30 p.m., after a joint investigation between the Cuyahoga Falls Police Narcotics Unit and the Summit County Drug Unit, the Cuyahoga Falls Police SWAT Team served a search and arrest warrant at 2255 Winter Parkway. Sheppard was taken into custody and turned over to narcotics detectives, according to a police department news release. As a result of the subsequent search, an amount of heroin well over bulk amount, approximately one-half pound of marijuana and more than $3,000 in cash were taken as evidence, the news release stated.
Further charges are possible as the investigation continues. Sheppard will be booked into the Summit County Jail pending his arraignment in the Stow Municipal Court on his current charges.
