Jury says Floyd dealt heroin and fentanyl


YOUNGSTOWN 

A jury found a Hopkins Road man guilty of trafficking in heroin and fentanyl. 

Corey Floyd, 39, faced the charges in connection with a July 2016 raid at his house that turned up 13 grams each of heroin and fentanyl along with a handgun.

The detective who led the case testified Wednesday that Floyd had scales, sifters and masks in his home that were consistent with “upper-level” drug dealing. 

A 2005 federal conviction in a drug case made it illegal for Floyd to possess a firearm. He served 63 months in that case. 

Judge John M. Durkin accepted the jury’s verdict today in Mahoning County Common Pleas Court.
