CHILLICOTHE — A Ross County grand jury indicted a man on a first-degree felony for allegedly having more than 1,100 doses of Oxycodone.
Hasani Hz Debrossard, 33, who has known addresses in Bidwell and Gallipolis, was indicted on two charges of aggravated possession of drugs — one a first-degree felony and one a third-degree felony — and a second-degree felony charge of possession of heroin.
The charges stem from intelligence the Chillicothe Police Department received that drugs were being brought into the area via someone on a Greyhound bus from Detroit on Feb. 10, according to the Ross County Prosecutor’s Office.
Police say Debrossard was riding in a taxi that officers stopped for a traffic violation, when a drug-sniffing dog alerted. During a search, police allegedly found three baggies in Debrossard’s underwear. Inside them, the prosecutor’s office reported there were 1,137 30-mg Oxycodone, 90 10-mg Oxycodone, and 20.1 grams of heroin.
If convicted, Debrossard faces one to four years on the heroin charge, two to eight years on the 10-mg Oxycodone charge, and three to 10 years on the 30-mg Oxycodone charge.
Friday’s Ross County grand jury returned indictments for all 18 cases presented. Of those, the following also were indicted:
» Randy L. Hines, 30, of 85 N. Walnut St., is charged with theft of drugs, a fourth-degree felony. The charge stems from a Feb. 5 incident at Adena Medical Center in which he allegedly went into various parts of the hospital and took epinephrine and two vials of other medications. The charge is a felony because they are all injectable drugs.
» Timothy J. Harris, 28, of Southeastern Correctional Institution, Lancaster, is charged with felonious assault, a second-degree felony. The charge stems from a Jan. 24 incident at the Alvis House in which he allegedly punched a man repeatedly because he wanted marijuana. The man sustained several fractures in the right side of his face.
» James M. Harris, 31, of 715 E. Fourth St., is charged with receiving stolen property, a fourth-degree felony. The charge stems from Harris allegedly being found with a truck stolen from Chillicothe at a store on U.S. 23. Feb. 29.
» Jeremy D. Chaney, 26, of 385 Smith Lane, Londonderry, is charged with possession of 525.8 grams of marijuana, a fifth-degree felony, on Feb. 17. Authorities allege they found the drugs on him after he had left the site of a crash on Allen Avenue.
