A Streetsboro man arrested following raids on several alleged Kent area drug dealers by the Portage County Drug Task Force in May 2012 has been sentenced to a three-year probation term.
Portage County Common Pleas Judge John Enlow recently placed Arthur E. Davis Jr., 24, of 771 Heath Lanein Streetsbiri on probation and ordered him to get a substance abuse evaluation.
Davis also was ordered to forfeit $687 in drug profits and pay $260 restitution to the drug task force, and his driver's license was suspended for six months with privileges for work, probation and treatment appointments, according to court records.
Davis pleaded guilty in October 2012 to two counts each of trafficking in heroin and trafficking in marijuana, all fifth-degree felonies, and one count of possession of heroin, a fourth-degree felony.
According to his indictment, Davis sold heroin or marijuana to undercover drug agents on Sept. 28 and Oct. 3, 2011, and on April 11, April 23 and May 2, 2012.
The drug task force raided addresses on Indian Valley Drive and in the 500 block of Franklin Avenue on May 3, 2012, seeking several men on drug-related charges. Davis and two others were eventually arrested, charged and later indicted by a Portage County grand jury.
One of those other men, Cody E. Belford, 25, with a last known address of 551 Franklin Ave., Kent, pleaded guilty in December to one count each of trafficking in heroin, trafficking in cocaine and possession of methamphetamine, all fifth-degree felonies.
Sentencing in Enlow's courtroom is pending a pre-sentence investigation.
A third defendant, Michael E. Albaugh, 42, of 655 Ellen Court, Ravenna, pleaded guilty Thursday to one count each of trafficking in cocaine, a fourth-degree felony, and forgery, a fifth-degree felony.
Sentencing in Judge Laurie Pittman's courtroom is pending a pre-sentence investigation.
