Wooster man gets community control for dealing drugs

A Wooster man was sentenced to two years of community control after he admitted to dealing drugs.

Shannon Thomas, 40, of 1168 Townsview Place, was sentenced on one count of aggravated trafficking, a third-degree felony, with a gun and money forfeiture specification, and one count of misdemeanor possession of marijuana, in Wayne County Common Pleas Court.

He was ordered to pay $245 in restitution, complete 100 hours of community service and has a license suspension of six months.

Thomas faces 36 months in prison if he violates any conditions of his probation.

The forfeiture specifications include a .22-caliber Torcin firearm and $1,703 in cash seized from Thomas.

The charges stem from January and February when drug buys of oxycodone were made from Thomas and his codefendant, Tamra Holliday.

Holliday, 22, of 1168 Townsview Place, Wooster, was sentenced to two years of community control for two counts of aggravated trafficking, both fourth-degree felonies, Sept. 10.

She also was ordered to complete 100 hours of community service, had her license suspended for six months and was ordered to make restitution of $525 to the Medway Drug Enforcement Agency.

Both were arrested in May after they were indicted through Medway's Operation Southern Migration round-up.
