GALLIPOLIS — Deputies from the Gallia County Sheriff’s Office and Gallia-Meigs Major Crimes Task Force served a warrant at a Bulaville Pike Residence resulting in the arrest of two.
Deshawn Kelley, 21, of Columbus, was arrested on charges of trafficking in narcotics and engaging in a pattern of corrupt activity. Carol Sue Reynolds, 58, of Gallipolis, was arrested on charge of permitting drug abuse. All are considered felonies in Ohio.
“Both of these individuals were booked into the Gallia County Jail where they deserve to be,” said Gallia Sheriff Matt Champlin. “My message has been clear to users. Clean up your act and seek help. My message has been crystal clear to dealers, pack up and move out or go to jail.”
The Major Crimes Task Force of Gallia-Meigs Counties is a state task force under the jurisdiction of the Ohio Organized Crime Investigations Commission which is part of the Ohio Attorney General’s Office. The agency was formed in September 2013. The task force is formed by the Gallia and Meigs County Sheriff’s Offices, Gallipolis and Middleport Police Departments and the Gallia and Meigs County Prosecutor’s Offices.
