On February 4th, 2014, Detectives from the MARMET / METRICH Drug Task Force,
along with Marion City Police, arrested a suspected crack and heroin drug
dealer. The investigation has been ongoing since his release on bond for
engaging in a pattern of corrupt activity and drug trafficking.
Arrested was Courtney Myles, Age: 22, from Marion charged with
2 counts Trafficking in Heroin
2 counts Trafficking in Crack Cocaine
Lt. Adkins of the MARMET Drug Task Force states, "It is very discouraging to law enforcement and detrimental to our community when we have to deal with the same drug dealers over and over again, as if they have no fear of the consequences for their actions".
Lt. Adkins encourages the public to continue to use the TIPS Line at 740-375-TIPS.
