Seven arrested on drug-trafficking charges in Lawrence County

Seven people have been arrested on drug-trafficking charges, according to information from the Lawrence County Prosecutor’s Office.

One of the people indicted still hasn’t been caught.

During the investigations, controlled purchases of heroin, oxycodone, hydrocodone, and suboxone were made.

Those arrested are identified as:

  • Keith L. Lanning, 43, of Ironton, Ohio
  • Marci Peters, 38 of Ironton
  • Bill J. Smith, 58, of Ironton
  • Aspen R. Barlo, 21, of Ironton
