3 indicted on trafficking charges


The Clark County Grand Jury indicted three people earlier this month for their involvement in a large scale drug trafficking operation.

Pedro Arriaga Reyes, Ebonyuwezo Jones, and Leroy Lewis III were named in the 19 count indictment.

According to court documents, Reyes supplied large quantities of cocaine, heroin, and marijuana to drug traffickers in and around Springfield between Sept. 2012 and August 2013. He is charged with supplying a kilogram of cocaine to Lewis in 2012, and another kilogram of cocaine to Lewis in May 2013.

On May 21, Lewis was arrested and found to be in possession of over 250 grams of cocaine. Reyes is also charged with supplying a kilogram of cocaine to Jones in June of this year.

On June 20, Jones was arrested in possession of over 1,000 grams of cocaine. Reyes also sold marijuana and heroin during the same time period.

The charges stem from an investigation by the Springfield Police Division, Clark County Prosecutor’s Office, and other agencies that included search warrants being executed at 11 locations in Springfield, Clark County, and Dayton between May and August 2013. During the course of the investigation, a total of 1,298.46 grams of cocaine, 7 firearms, over $50,000, and 5 vehicles were seized.
