UPPER SANDUSKY — Two area men were indicted this week on felony drug trafficking charges following their arrests Tuesday at a Carey grocery store, the Wyandot County Sheriff’s Office reported.
Stoney A. Dendinger, 27, of Fostoria, was indicted by a Wyandot County grand jury for trafficking in cocaine and aggravated trafficking in Percocet, each a first-degree felony, court records show. Dendinger also was indicted for trafficking in a counterfeit controlled substance, a fourth-degree felony.
According to the grand jury report, the seized cocaine was more than 27 grams, but less than 100 grams.
Bond was set at $20,000 for Dendinger, who remained in custody Thursday, the sheriff’s office reported.
Dustin Kyle Chapman, 21, of Carey, was indicted on two counts of trafficking in marijuana, each a fifth-degree felony, the sheriff’s office said.
Court records allege that Chapman offered to sell less than 200 grams of marijuana.
Chapman was served a summons to appear at a Feb. 28 arraignment in Wyandot County Common Pleas Court, according to authorities.
Wyandot County Sheriff Michael Hetzel said Thursday the two men were arrested at 4 p.m. Tuesday at the IGA store in Carey.
According to the sheriff, the arrests stemmed from a narcotics investigation conducted by the sheriff’s office with the aid of the METRICH Drug Task Force.
