Man Accused Of Selling Cocaine, Heroin & Handguns In Mentor

Bryan Shepherd is also accused of assaulting a police officer

A Richmond Heights man is accused of selling cocaine, heroin and handguns in the city of Mentor.

Police observed Bryan Shepherd, 19, selling drugs or handguns in Mentor on multiple occasions between Jan. 28 and Feb. 7, Mentor Police Lt. Tim Allen said.

Additionally, when Mentor officers went to arrest Shepherd Thursday night, he tried to flee, Allen said.

While attempting to drive away, Shepherd crashed into a police car and gave an officer minor injuries, Allen said.

Shepherd was charged with three counts of heroin trafficking, two counts of selling cocaine, two counts of having a weapon under a disability and one count each of failing to comply with police, possession of criminal tools and assaulting an officer.

Furthermore, Shepherd is already out on bond for charges of drug trafficking and possession in Cuyahoga County.

Shepherd was arraigned Friday morning in Mentor Municipal Court. Acting Judge Paul Mitrovich set his bond at $200,000, which wasn't posted.

Shepherd's next court hearing is scheduled for Feb. 14.

I can not think of a better reason to go back to chain gangs. Jail is way to good for them.
