Three men indicted by grand jury on drug charges

Were arrested during New Carlisle drug bust in July.

Three men arrested on drug charges during a Clark County Sheriff’s Office raid in New Carlisle last month were indicted on multiple counts by a Clark County grand jury Monday.

Derrick M. Keeton, 200 Fenwick, New Carlisle; Damian Bateman, 16 Elm, Medway; and Joseph L. Marshall, at large; were each indicted on three counts of trafficking in heroin, two counts of aggravated trafficking in drugs and single counts of engaging in a pattern of corrupt activity, possession of heroin, trafficking in cocaine and possession of cocaine.

The sheriff’s office, assisted by the multi-jurisdictional RANGE task force, concluded a 30-day drug investigation by raiding a home at 200 Fenwick Drive in New Carlisle July 9. All three men lived at the house, according to Clark County Sheriff Gene Kelly, at the time of the bust.
