The Morning Journal (Lorain, OH) - - LOCAL NEWS - — Staff re­ports

Two Lo­rain men are fac­ing mul­ti­ple drug charges fol­low­ing the ex­e­cu­tion of a search war­rant Feb. 13.

Michael De­skins, 25, and Devin Sweat, 22, were ar­rested at a res­i­dence in the 400 block of Brownell Av­enue, ac­cord­ing to Sgt. Tom Ni­mon of the Lo­rain Po­lice Nar­cotics Bu­reau.

De­skins is charged with pos­ses­sion and traf­fick­ing of heroin/fen­tanyl, and sin­gle felony counts of pos­ses­sion of crim­i­nal tools and drug para­pher­na­lia.

Sweat is fac­ing charges of pos­ses­sion and traf­fick­ing of heroin/fen­tanyl and pos­ses­sion of drug para­pher­na­lia.

Both men are in the Lo­rain City Jail pend­ing an ar­raign­ment in Lo­rain Mu­nic­i­pal Court.

Ni­mon said the depart­ment was alerted to drug ac­tiv­ity in the area by res­i­dents and watched the prop­erty for two weeks.

In­side the res­i­dence in­ves­ti­ga­tors found a few thou­sand dol­lars worth of fen­tanyl along with .380-cal­iber am­mu­ni­tion, po­lice said. De­skins also was in pos­ses­sion of fen­tanyl, Ni­mon said.

“We were alerted by con­sci­en­tious neigh­bors, peo­ple that live in that gen­eral area,” he said. “We got calls from peo­ple sev­eral blocks away. That re­ally helps my of­fice when we get those phone calls from peo­ple.”

Any­one with in­for­ma­tion is asked to call the Lo­rain Po­lice Nar­cotics Bu­reau at 440-204-2108.
