Three Men Arrested in Devola Heroin Bust
Posted on: 04/22/2014
By  Mike Cullums
Washington County Sheriff Larry Mincks says a routine check of a probationer’s home near Devola today by Probation Officer Eric Brockmeier led to the discovery of heroin paraphernalia and ultimately to a significant amount of heroin.  
After the probation check brought about suspicions, sheriff’s detectives and Major Crimes Task Force agents obtained and executed a search warrant for the home of 23-year-old Corey Cowan at 530 Millgate Road.
(Millgate Road runs northeast from State Route 60 near the Marietta Bible Center. The residence is atop a steep hill in an isolated neighborhood.)
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.
