Youngstown man accused of operating drug house to sell heroin, fentanyl

Phillip Lemon, II is charged with possession of heroin and having weapons under disability

CLEVELAND, Ohio (WYTV) – A Youngstown is accused of operating a drug house to distribute fentanyl and heroin, according to a federal indictment.

Phillip Lemon, II, 28, is charged with five counts of possession of heroin and having weapons under disability charges.

The U.S. Attorney for the Northern District of Ohio says Lemon distributed more than 100 grams of heroin in December 2015 from a McHenry Street home in Youngstown. He also owned two revolvers, despite a past conviction of conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute heroin, which prohibited him from owning a firearm.

Lemon was charged after an investigation by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives and the Youngstown Police Department. The case is being prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney David M. Toepfer.
