Nobody Talks, Everybody Walks. Ohio criminal defense lawyer with nearly 40 years experience

“When I was arrested by the Feds on Drug Conspiracy charges, they told me I was facing mandatory life in federal prison without the possibility of parole. I knew that I was innocent, but I was scared . . . so I knew that I would have to find a lawyer who was not afraid of the Feds and would take my case to trial. I chose Greg Robey because he is a fighter. After over 2 weeks in a federal jury trial, I was found Not Guilty of all charges. My family and I am forever grateful to Mr. Robey.” -L.B., Mansfield, Ohio

Largest Drug Bust in Geauga County in More Than 30 Years

Geauga County, home to the country’s second largest Amish population, is located only 30 miles outside of Cleveland. However, its culture and suburban setting do not protect it from the crime and corruption of the big city. On Friday, June 13, the Geauga County Sheriff’s Office announced that it had conducted perhaps the largest drug bust in the area in more than 38 years.

What sparked the investigation that took place on June 3 and eventually led to the arrest of four people remains unclear. Additional details regarding the case follow:

  • Police raided a home in the 15500 block of Park View Drive and confiscated $128,000 in cash, 10 firearms (including shotguns, rifles and handguns), 100 pounds of marijuana valued at $250,000, 6 pounds of crystal meth worth $666,000, 1 kilo of black tar heroin worth $180,000 and steroids valued at $50,000.
  • Many of the seized firearms and drugs were located in a fake wall in the basement of the home.
  • Four people were arrested and charged with aggravated possession of drugs — Dominic Bangera, 43, Raymond Utt, 43, Omar Lopez, 21, and Jacqueline Sanchez, 36.
  • Some of the individuals arrested had previous arrests for burglary, theft, grand theft auto, robbery, possession of controlled substance for sale, manufacturing of drugs and cultivation of marijuana.

The four individuals in custody will likely face other charges in addition to aggravated possession of drugs. Whether you are arrested for a drug offense, firearm possession or other crime in Ohio, seek professional help as soon as possible.
