The Dearborn-Ohio County Prosecutor’s Office has released more information about a drug bust that occurred Tuesday in Greendale.


The Dearborn County Special Crimes Unit with the assistance of Greendale Police, Lawrenceburg Police and the Dearborn County Sheriff’s Department arrested three individuals in connection with heroin sales.


Detectives had been working the case for about three weeks before Tuesday afternoon’s arrests on Craig Avenue in Greendale.


Arrested were Joshua E. Comer, 25, of Covington; Lamocres Allen Johnson, 25, of Cincinnati; and Andrea Jeanne White, 22, of Vevay. They have each been charged with Dealing in a Narcotic Drug (Heroin), Conspiracy to Commit Dealing in a Narcotic Drug (Heroin), and other related charges, the prosecutor’s office said.


Comer, Johnson, and White are scheduled to appear in a Dearborn County courtroom on Friday for their initial hearings.




Original story posted at 7:12 a.m.:


(Greendale, Ind.) – At least two people were arrested in connection with a possible drug investigation that came to a climax in Greendale on Tuesday, October 29.


At around 3:20 p.m., detectives with the Dearborn County Special Crimes Unit and Greendale Police were carrying out a reported drug investigation in a parking lot on Craig Avenue near Belleview Drive/State Road 1.


Two people may have tried to flee in an SUV, but were stopped by officers.


That’s when an eyewitness began recording cellphone video of the incident. The footage — provided to Eagle 99.3 by the eyewitness — shows officers with guns drawn instructing two suspects to exit the SUV. They eventually did and were arrested.


The names of those suspects and more about that possible drug investigation could be released later Wednesday by the Dearborn County Prosecutor’s Office and Special Crimes Unit.
