The Hamilton County Sheriff's Office has arrested six people who are accused of being involved in the distribution of large quantities of cocaine and heroin in the Greater Cincinnati area. 

Arrested were:

  • Arron Stubblefield, of Cincinnati, Trafficking in Drugs/Possession of Drugs

The investigation indicated that Stubblefield and ONeal were responsible for the distribution of large quantities of cocaine and heroin to Greater Cincinnati dealers, including Hyde and others not yet arrested. 

Illegal substances were supplied to Stubblefield and ONeal by Portis, who traveled between Atlanta and Cincinnati.  Once delivered, the drugs were stored at Cincinnati residences under the control of sisters Chimere and Kenyata Magette. 

Over four pounds of cocaine, one pound of heroin and over $100,000.00 in drug trafficking derived assets were seized during residence and vehicle searches which occurred Tuesday and Wednesday.  All defendants have been arraigned in Hamilton County Municipal Court, and are detained at the Hamilton County Justice Center.
