Once inside the home, officers found syringes, two
digital scales and a large box of sandwich bags, along with heroin that was
packaged for sale plus a larger chunk of heroin. In total, twenty-six grams of
heroin were seized from the home.
Present at the residence in addition to Corey Cowan were 33-year-old
Jermaine Green of Zanesville, and his brother, 33-year-old Jeremy Green of
Tadpole Run Road in Dunham Township.
Sheriff Mincks says Jeremy Green was recently released
from federal probation and was arrested twice in Washington County for drug
trafficking. In fact, Mincks says, he was en route to sentencing for a previous
drug trafficking conviction when he was arrested again for trafficking.
All three suspects allegedly admitted using heroin at the Millgate
Road residence and acknowledged knowing the heroin was in the home.
Consequently, all three suspects were arrested on a second degree felony
charge of trafficking in heroin.
The men are being held in the County Jail without bond
pending their initial court appearance tomorrow morning.
