SANDUSKY, Ohio — Eight people were indicted in federal court for their roles in attempting to sell large amounts of cocaine and heroin in Sandusky, according to the U.S. Attorney’s Office.

Seven of the eight of those indicted were from Sandusky. Siron Mills, 41; Patrick Brown, 38; Daryl Castile, 48; Timothy Johnson, 40; Jon Lippert, 38; Darrius Martin, 26, and Eugene Nicholson, 49, were all charged with conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute controlled substances, authorities said.

Gregory Boswell, 44, of Cleveland, also faces the same charges.

In addition to the charges all eight people face, Martin is also being charged with being a felon in possession of ammunition, according to authorities.

Mills obtained the cocaine and heroin from a supplier first, then distributed it to others involved in the case. The eight people indicted all assisted in storing, packaging and distributing the drugs in the Sandusky area, according to the indictment.

Prosecutors are seeking to forfeit four firearms, ammunition and nearly $40,000 in cash seized as part of the investigation, the indictment said.
