CATLETTSBURG Two Detroit men arrested earlier this year on drug trafficking charges were indicted by the grand jury on Tuesday on additional drug trafficking charges.

Detron Demetrius Edwards Jr., 24, and Javon Issac-Desmond Ross, 21, both of Michigan, were indicted by the Boyd County Grand Jury on the charges of first-degree trafficking in fentanyl, a class B felony, and trafficking in cocaine, a class C felony, according to court records.

Both men were indicted after court records said they trafficked and sold 28 grams or more of fentanyl and sold 4 grams or more of cocaine.

Ross also faces charges of first-degree trafficking in the controlled substance heroin, buying or possessing drug paraphernalia and trafficking in marijuana, according to jail records.

Edwards also faces charges of first-degree trafficking in heroin, tampering with physical evidence, buying or possessing drug paraphernalia and trafficking in marijuana, according to jail records.

Edwards and Ross were arrested earlier in June at a residence in Westwood by the Boyd County Sheriff's Department, police reports said.

According to reports, deputies were called to assist with the Cabinet for Health and Family Services and smelled marijuana inside the residence.

Deputies got a search warrant and located two clear plastic baggies containing a “white powdery substance, believed to be heroin,” police reports said. Deputies found marijuana and digital scales, police reports said.

Both men remain lodged at the Boyd County Detention Center on a $200,000 cash only bond.
