CLEVELAND – Nicholas D. Geer, 26, of Euclid, Ohio, was found guilty on all counts by a jury after a three-day trial before U.S. District Judge J. Philip Calabrese in Cleveland yesterday. Geer was convicted of seven counts of possession with intent to distribute various drugs and two firearms charges. Specifically, Geer was found guilty of possession with intent to distribute fentanyl, acetyl fentanyl, fluorofentanyl, heroin, cocaine and cocaine base and for being a felon in possession of a firearm and possession of a firearm in furtherance of a drug trafficking crime.

According to court documents and evidence presented in court a search warrant was executed at a house Geer was staying at in Cleveland Heights. During the search, agents seized various quantities of drugs and a loaded .40 caliber handgun in the kitchen of the residence. Geer was discovered hiding in a closet in the basement. Law enforcement had previously conducted two controlled drug purchases from Geer, one at that residence. Geer is prohibited under federal law from possessing a firearm due to previous felony convictions.

The investigation was conducted by the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA), the Cleveland Heights Police Department, and the Euclid Police Department. This case is being prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorneys Vanessa Healy and Robert Kolansky.
