Another suspect in Warren gun and drug conspiracy expected to plead

Posted: Updated:

CLEVELAND, Ohio - A second suspect is expected to plead guilty Wednesday for his alleged part in a federal narcotics and firearm conspiracy centered in the Warren area.

A document filed in federal court says that 22-year-old Chance Wells will appear before a judge on Wednesday morning where intends to change his original not guilty plea to charges of  conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute heroin and cocaine.

Last week, another suspect in the case changed his plea.  28-year-old Ahmen McCollum of Warren pleaded guilty to using a telephone in the commission of a felony.  McCollum will be sentenced in Federal Court on September, 19.

On April 17, the U.S. Justice department announced the indictment of 55 people on firearms and narcotics charges in Warren.  155 firearms were seized.

At the same time, an additional 42 people were charged in state court on similar charges.

The indictments allege a conspiracy involving 21 people who are accused of bringing large quantities of heroin, cocaine and crack cocaine from Detroit to Warren, as well as another conspiracy that brought heroin from Columbus to Warren and Dayton.

The government claims that others sold Oxycodone, Hyrdrocodone, heroin and crack cocaine.

Some face multiple indictments for alleged illegal possession and sale of firearms.
