Donnell Bell, a 40-year old Twinsburg man, was among seven people indicted in federal court Dec. 13, for conspiracy to distribute carfentanil, fentanyl, heroin and cocaine.
Police allege Bell sold drugs which were then resold for a profit.
Others named in the 18-count indictment are; Aaron Reels, 52, of Cleveland; Henry Williams, 45, of Shaker Heights; William Wheat, Jr., 35, of Cleveland; Andre Thompson, 39, of Brook Park; Otha Short, 66, of Cleveland, and Carl Mileca, 74, of Cleveland.
According to the indictment, Reels allegedly purchased drugs from Bell, Wheat, Williams and others. Reels then is alleged to have sold the drugs for profit to Thompson, Short, Mileca and others.
This took place between September 2017 and April 2018.
The case is being prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Marisa T. Darden.
