A Garfield Heights man has been indicted on multiple drug charges in connection with intent to deal carfentanil and other opioids.

According to authorities, 29-year-old Tyrone Cammon was charged with possession with intent to distribute carfentanil, fentanyl, heroin and fentanyl analogues. In addition, Cammon was charged with using a firearm in relation to drug trafficking and having weapons under disability.

Carfentanil is an extremely strong drug used to sedate large animals such as elephants.

“This defendant sold the same drugs that have killed thousands of our friends and relatives and illegally carried a firearm as part of his drug trafficking,” U.S. Attorney Justin Herdman said.

Cammon was found to have around 12 grams of methoxyacetylfentanyl, carfentanil and fentanyl pharmacophore that was prepped for distribution, authorities said.

The case was investigated by the Lakewood and Cleveland police, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives.

Cammon has prior convictions for drug trafficking, assault and tampering with evidence, authorities said.
