GREENVILLE - Two Dayton men that were arrested during a narcotics investigation appeared in court for the charges Friday morning.
Darke County Common Pleas Court Judge Jonathan P. Hein set bond via video connection with the Darke County Jail for Bobby R. House, 22, and Terrance Bolton, 55, both of Dayton. The pair were arrested Wednesday and charged with a second degree felony of Trafficking in Drug (Heroin). The charge was more severe due to the amount of the drug.
A buy/bust operation with a confidential informant led to over 10 grams of the dangerous street drug being allegedly sold by House. According to Darke County Prosecuting Attorney Kelly Ormsby, Bolton was reportedly the driver for House to get to Greenville and was charged as an accomplice to the crime. According to detectives, the duo made several trips to Darke County making deals before their arrest.
Bolton was given a $50,000 bond, while House, who has a prior drug conviction in 2009 with Montgomery County for crack cocaine, is jailed on a $100,000 bond. Both men face additional drug charges and are scheduled to appear back in court Jan. 6, 2014 at 10 a.m. if they are indicted Thursday by a Grand Jury. They face mandatory prison sentences and fines for their current charges.
