Man Suspected in Fentanyl Trafficking Ring Arrested in Campbell County


A Mason man charged for participation in a major fentanyl trafficking ring was arrested Thursday in Campbell County, police said.

Keysean Dickey, 25, was arrested at 8:52 p.m. Thursday and taken to the Campbell County Jail.

Officers seized 250 grams of fentanyl, $15,000 cash and four handguns and arrested 11 other suspects in June and announced that Dickey, Dominic Davis, Da’Marco Browner and Mykeal Parker were still at-large and suspected of participating.

Sixteen defendants - most from Cincinnati - are charged with 45 counts including conspiracy, distribution, possession of a firearm and money laundering.

Six of the defendants are charged with laundering thousands of dollars by renting cars with drug money and using the cars to distribute the fentanyl.

The indictment alleged the group distributed more than 400 grams of fentanyl from September 2016 to June 2017.
