Three Indicted on Drug and Firearms Charges

For Immediate Release
U.S. Attorney's Office, Northern District of Indiana

FORT WAYNE – The Acting United States Attorney for the Northern District of Indiana, Clifford D. Johnson, announced a variety of drug and firearms charges in a 12 count Indictment. Named in the indictment are: Keith Miller, of Albion, Indiana; Brock Shellman, of Albion, Indiana and; Derek Jordan, of Wolcottville, Indiana.


The indictment alleges that Miller and Shellman were involved in a conspiracy to possess a large amount of methamphetamine intended for distribution, as well as the attempt to possess a large amount of methamphetamine with the intent to distribute. The indictment also alleges several instances of methamphetamine trafficking by Miller, firearms offenses by Keith Miller and Derek Jordan, and that Keith Miller was using his residence to engage in narcotics trafficking.


The United States Attorney’s office emphasizes that an Indictment is merely an allegation and that all persons are presumed innocent until, and unless proven guilty in court.


If convicted, any specific sentence to be imposed will be determined by the judge after a consideration of federal sentencing statutes and the Federal Sentencing Guidelines.


This indictment results from a long- term multi-agency investigation conducted by the Drug Enforcement Administration Task Force in Fort Wayne, which includes personnel from the Drug Enforcement Administration, the Noble County Sheriff’s Department, the Steuben County Sheriff’s Department, and the Fort Wayne Police Department. Also participating in this investigation was the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives.


This case is being handled by Assistant United States Attorney Lesley J. Miller Lowery.
