Man Accused Of Selling Heroin In Mentor

David Johnson faces two charges of trafficking heroin

A Cleveland man is accused of selling heroin in Mentor on two different occasions.

David Johnson, 27, was arraigned on two charges of heroin trafficking and a count of possession of criminal tools Tuesday in Mentor Municipal Court.

The "criminal tools," in this case, refer to a cell phone, according to court documents.

Police saw Johnson selling heroin in the city on Nov. 7 and again Monday, Mentor Police Lt. Tom Powers said.

He was arrested after the second sale.

Judge John Trebets set Johnson's bond at $45,000, which was not posted.

Johnson's next preliminary hearing is scheduled for Nov. 19.

just wondering how you "SEE" someone selling heroin? Was he wearing a sign? Like "Johnson Smack Company"?? Seems like there has to be a bit more to how they caught him.

Unfortuantely, our cousin's son is holed up at that Value Place on Diamond Centre, and 2/3 of that hotel (especially the 3rd floor) is a heroin den. Very easy to purchase, the sales are outside the side door all day long and the dealers sometimes park and wait for customers in the last row of parking by Sam's Club. To think he actually went there to get "clean" but spends his time with the other addicts Scott, Todd, Eric, Chris and the "girlfriends" who bring it to the Petticoat, Oakhill Village in Willoughby etc.

It shouldn't matter how they caught him, all that should matter is that they caught the low life scum bag drugie. Thank you MPD! Great job!
