EAST LIVERPOOL, Ohio (WKBN) – Seven people were named in a 79-count indictment for their roles in a conspiracy to traffic crack and powder cocaine in and around East Liverpool.

Indicted are Brady Carmichael, 26, and Bryan Carmichael, 27, of Columbus; Guy Dorsey, 54, of Wellsville; and Katie Riley, 26; Jacqueline Riley, 30; Phyllis Chamberlain, 55, and Allana Baker, 30, all of East Liverpool.

Prosecutors say the Carmichaels and Katie Riley transported cocaine from the Columbus area to East Liverpool between June and July 2016. The Carmichaels and Riley would then convert the cocaine into crack cocaine for redistribution around the East Liverpool area, according to the indictment.

The Carmichaels and Katie Riley supplied crack cocaine to Baker, Chamberlain and Dorsey for redistribution around the East Liverpool area, prosecutors said. The defendants used cellular telephones, code words and phrases to facilitate their drug trafficking activities, according to the indictment.

The seven were charged after an investigation by the Drug Enforcement Administration and the Columbiana County Drug Task Force.
