Fourteen Delaware Men Charged In Two Indictments

Posted: Updated:

DELAWARE - Fourteen local men have been named in two indictments, with more than 23 counts including drug distribution and dog fighting charges.

United States Attorney Charles Oberly III, says the drug indictment alleges that from January to March 2014 in Delaware, Edward Sturgis, 38 of Dover, Leshawn Ingram, 28 of Smyrna, Christopher Glover, 40 of Dover, Robert Ingram, 30 of Dover, James Wilson, 49 of Magnolia, and Corey Curtis, 38 of New Castle, all conspired to possess cocaine with the intent to distribute. That indictment also alleges that Sturgis, Leshawn Ingram, Glover, Robert Ingram, Wilson, Terah Moore, age 36 of Dover; Keith Adkins, age 36 of Dover; Dwyane Dixon, age 46 of Dover; Jamar Cannon, age 31 of Dover; Curtis, and Aaron Cannon, age 27 of Hartley, engaged in the distribution and/or possession of cocaine with the intent to distribute it in the state. Also included in the 23 count indictment are possession of firearms by prohibited persons. If convicted, the suspects face up to 20 years behind bars, fines, and supervised release.

The second indictment reportedly states that between January 17th and February 19th, 2014, Sturgis, Robert Ingram, William Chapman, age 42 of Dover, Tyshi Hazzard, age 36 of Rehoboth Beach, and Deshawn Groce, age 39 of Dover all violated the federal dog fighting statue. If convicted, the suspects could face up to five years for imprisonment, along with fines, and supervised release.

These indictments and arrests were apparently the result of a long-term multi agency investigation, which included 18 search warrants, several firearm and controlled substance seizures. Officials remind the public that indictments are only allegations, and all accused are presumed innocent until proven guilty.
