CATLETTSBURG – A Boyd County grand jury indicted two Michigan men recently on drug trafficking charges.
Detron Demetrius Edwards Jr., 24, of Detroit faces four charges and was held on a $200,000 cash-only bond, according to court documents. They include felony charges of trafficking in heroin and tampering with physical evidence, and misdemeanor charges of buying or possessing drug paraphernalia and trafficking in marijuana.
Javon Issac-Desmond Ross, 21, of Detroit, Michigan faces three charges and was held on a $200,000 cash-only bond, court documents said. They include trafficking in heroin, a felony, and misdemeanor charges of buying or possessing drug paraphernalia and trafficking in marijuana.
An indictment is not a conviction of guilt and all individuals are presumed innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.
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 were lodged at the Boyd County Detention Center.
