Federal Grand Jury Indicts 11 for Narcotics Ring in Cincinnati

( Cincinnati, OH ) – A federal grand jury has charged 11 individuals in a narcotics and money-laundering conspiracy.

According to the indictment, from at least August 2012 until April 2017, the defendants allegedly distributed fentanyl, ketamine, cocaine and heroin in the Cincinnati region.

Those charged include:

John T. Moore, Jr. , 33

Ricardo Campbell, 33

Teron Campbell, 26

Derwin Gadson, 22

Patricia O’Neal, 37

Timothy Mosely, 34

Ronnie Parrott, 33

Keiron Ashurst, 53

Vernon Coffee, Age not listed

Shanda Green, 39

Jeronda Kelley, 36

Two defendants, Derwin Gadson and Ronnie Parrott, remain at large. The other nine were arrested late last week.

The indictment also formally charges Ricardo Campbell with operating a drug involved premises at 5520 Silverpointe Drive in Cincinnati.

Sixteen additional homes are named in the indictment as properties potentially purchased with drug proceeds or through other illicit means. That includes homes in Cincinnati on Montana, Lowry, Mystic, Wilson, Crestline, Wyoming, Simpson, Cleveland and Blair avenues, Saffer and Dillward streets, Woodcrest and Sarvis courts, Rapid Run and Montgomery roads, a home in Fairfield on Flaig Drive, and a home in West Chester on Tarragon Court.

John T. Moore – who solely owned and operated both John T. Moore Construction, LLC and Lieutenant Dan, LLC (a real estate company) – purchased four of the properties by allegedly defrauding mortgage lenders.

He allegedly lied on loan applications in order to secure loans and enter into purchase agreements.

The superseding indictment alleges Moore falsified bank statements to inflate the available balance and overstated the value of other properties he claimed to own. Moore also allegedly did not disclose that certain loans were to purchase residential property as opposed to a Business Equity Line of Credit.

Additionally, Moore, Shanda Green and Jeronda Kelley are charged with structuring financial transactions to evade tax requirements and with money laundering.
