NILES, Ohio (WKBN) – Niles Police Department’s Drug Unit arrested a suspect Monday in a case involving the delivery of heroin and carfentanil to several locations in Niles.
John Anthony Davis III, 29, of Warren, is in the Trumbull County Jail on felony charges of trafficking in drugs.
The Niles Police Department’s Drug Unit was assisted by the Trumbull Ashtabula Group (TAG) in making the arrest.
Niles Police Capt. John Marshall said investigators have noticed that drug traffickers are now mobile, meaning that they’re delivering drugs to their customers rather than selling from a “drug house.” As such, many suspects charged with drug trafficking are from areas outside of the city.
Police said anyone with information on drug trafficking in Niles is asked to contact the drug unit by using the drug tip link at www.thecityofniles.com or by calling 330-652-9944 (option 3).
