Five people have been arrested after a five-month investigation by the Regional Narcotics Unit.

Investigators developed evidence regarding the diversion of pharmaceutical narcotics, specifically Oxycodone – commonly marketed as Percocet and Oxycontin, and other controlled substances which were shipped from Southern California to the Greater Cincinnati area for distribution.

Arrested were:

  • Charles Scott Chapman, 37, of Cheviot
  • Stacey Doll, 27, of Cheviot
  • Thomas Doll, 61, of Cincinnati
  • Ryan Shill, 32, of Santa Ana, Calif.
  • Justin Gorum, 32, of  Los Angeles, Calif.

Shill was arrested in Cincinnati after arriving at the residence ofChapman and Stacey Doll, while in the process of delivering drugs from California. Justin Gorum was arrested in Los Angeles, California by RENU Agents and members of the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Office, on warrants initiated in Cincinnati.

The investigation documented the distribution in Greater Cincinnati of approximately 10,000 dosage units of Oxycodone per month, which were shipped from Southern California via parcel common carriers and vehicles traveling on interstate highways. Over 7,000 dosage units were seized during incidents which resulted in these arrests. Over 35 pounds of marijuana was also seized during weekend residence and vehicle searches. Over $130,000.00 in drug trafficking derived currency and other assets of the trafficking organization were also seized.

Chief Deputy Donovan stated that the investigation indicated that California drug sources Shill and Gorum originally became acquainted with Cincinnati drug distributor Chapman while all three were incarcerated in the Ohio prison system, coincidentally as a result of drug trafficking convictions resulting from an earlier Regional Narcotics Unit investigation.

All defendants were charged with Drug Trafficking and Conspiracy offenses, and were taken to the Hamilton County Justice Center, except Justin Gorum, who is held in Los Angeles pending extradition to Ohio.
