After several months of investigation, detectives with the Logan County Joint Drug Task Force moved Tuesday to arrest a Bellefontaine man they believe transports black tar heroin from Columbus to here for personal use and to sell.
Gregory D. Coons, 40, of 416 Woodland Drive, was charged with three counts of trafficking heroin and single counts of possession of heroin and possession of drug abuse instruments after the task force and officers of the Bellefontaine Police Department served a search warrant at his residence.
About the same time, 6 p.m., officers conducted a traffic stop in the 600 block of east Sandusky Avenue. The driver, Christopher A. King, 26, of 628 Cooper Ave., was charged with possession of heroin and possession of drug abuse instruments.
Eight hypodermic needles with one containing heroin, a burnt spoon, a shoe lace and 15 balls of black tar heroin were seized by the task force.
Both men were lodged in the Logan County Jail.
