OPERATION "REVOLVING DOOR" PDF Print E-mail
Written by Major Jeff Cline   
Tuesday, 27 August 2013

On August 27, 2013, approximately 30 law enforcement officers from the MARMET/METRICH Drug Task Force, the Marion County Sheriff’s Department, and the Marion City Police Department searched for nearly 50 people wanted for involvement in the Illegal drug trade in Marion County.

The search was the culmination of a 6-month investigation into the illegal sales of drugs in the city and county of Marion. Since January 1 purchases from those suspects being sought today. Heroin, Crack Cocaine, and prescription medication were the main drugs bought during these controlled purchases.

On August 21, 2013, Marion County Prosecutor Brent Yager conducted a special grand jury to hear and to decide on the indictments from this investigation. Hundreds of hours Were spent by law enforcement and the Marion County Prosecutor’s Office in preparation for this day.

At approximately 9:00 AM, 5 arrest teams fanned out across the city and county to search for those wanted on drug trafficking charges. Nearly all of the issued warrants are for mid- to street-level dealers of various types of illegal drugs. All arrests were taken to the Marion Police Department for processing. From there, they were then transported to the Multi-County Correctional Center.

All of the suspects arrested today will be arraigned in Marion Municipal Court on August 28, 2013. This release will be updated throughout the day as more suspects are arrested and other information becomes available.

Major Bill Collins Commander of the MARMET/METRICH Drug Task Force stated: “At the beginning of the year, we promised the citizens of Marion we would remain vigilant in our efforts to seek out and to stem the tide of illegal drug sales in Marion. This is an answer to that promise. This operation will certainly have a positive impact to the availability of illegal drugs in our community.”

Major Collins also noted, “Our operation has been dubbed Revolving Door, as over 90% of those being arrested have had prior drug related convictions.” Major Collins encourages the citizens of Marion to continue to be our eyes and ears of the community; many of the cases developed were a direct result of tips left on the Marion Tips Line. Please continue to report suspected drug dealers in your neighborhoods by calling 740-375-TIPS (8477).

As of 3:00 PM the following suspects have been arrested or are still being sought by Law Enforcement.
