November 15, 2013

ST. MARYS — Nine people, including a St. Marys woman, were arrested Friday morning as part of a drug investigation conducted by the Grand Lake Task Force.

The task force served the grand jury indictments following an extensive investigation. Arrested Friday were:

• Lesley Oakes, 31, of Lima, on four counts of trafficking in cocaine.

• Ross Durr, 40, of Lima, on three counts of trafficking in cocaine.

• Humphrey Knight, 53, of Lima, on three counts of trafficking in cocaine, and one count of trafficking in prescription medication.

• Gerald Lamb, 27, of Cridersville, on three counts of trafficking in marijuana, and one count of trafficking in prescription medication.

• Kendra Van Atta, 22, of Cridersville, on one count of trafficking in marijuana.

• Ellen Dyer, 43, of Cridersville, on four counts of trafficking in prescription medication.

• Sherri Poppe, 32, of St. Marys, on one count of trafficking in prescription medication.

• Sara Lee, 32, of Wapakoneta, on five counts of trafficking in prescription medication.

• Steven Moots, 52, of Lima, on four counts of trafficking in prescription medication.

One person remains at-large and has not been located at this time. Another is currently in the Allen County Correctional Center on other charges. The names of these two individuals were not released. The charges on these two are also drug trafficking charges. Also during the arrests, one search warrant was executed that resulted in the confiscation of drugs and cash.

"We really are working hard and doing everything we can to combat the drug issue but it seems that when one is taken into custody another replaces that person," Auglaize County Sheriff Al Solomon said in a news release. "But, we will keep fighting. The drug investigations continue and more arrests will be coming in the future."
