Trumbull sheriff's clerk resigns after husband indicted

Staff report


A clerk at the Trumbull County Sheriff’s office resigned this week after her husband was charged with drug trafficking after a 10-month investigation.

Chester Adams, 40, of Sheridan Avenue Northeast, was arrested Wednesday on nine counts of felony drug trafficking after raids on three locations in the city, including his home.

The raids uncovered suspected crack cocaine, a gun, drug paraphernalia, four vehicles and more than $18,000 in cash, according to the Trumbull Ashtabula Group Law Enforcement Task Force.

The raids were the result of an investigation by TAG, U.S. Department of Homeland Security and U.S. Bureau of Alcohol Tobacco and Firearms.

Adams was indicted by a Trumbull County grand jury the same day on the same nine charges.
