Stow man indicted for having methamphetamine, heroin and fentanyl

A Stow man was indicted in federal court for having methamphetamine, heroin and fentanyl.

David Thomas, Jr., 29, was indicted on one count of possession with intent to distribute methamphetamine and one count of possession with intent to distribute fentanyl and heroin.

Thomas had more than 500 grams of methamphetamine and approximately 12 grams of a mixture of fentanyl and heroin on February 23, 2019, according to the indictment.

If convicted, the defendant's sentence will be determined by the Court after reviewing factors unique to this case, including the defendant's prior criminal record, if any, the defendant's role in the offense and the characteristics of the violation.  In all cases the sentence will not exceed the statutory maximum and in most cases it will be less than the maximum.

This case was investigated by the FBI and South Euclid Police Department. It is being prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Patrick Burke.

An indictment is only a charge and is not evidence of guilt.  The burden of proof is always on the government to prove a defendant guilty beyond a reasonable doubt.
