A Kent man arrested in June on charges of dealing pot has been indicted by the Portage County grand jury on multiple drug-related charges.

Charles W Stehney, 43, of 527 N. Willow St., has been indicted on one count of trafficking in marijuana, a fourth-degree felony; possession of LSD, a fifth-degree felony; possession of methamphetamine, a fifth-degree felony; possession of ketamine, a fifth-degree felony; possession of D.M.T., a fifth-degree felony; obstructing official business, a fifth-degree felony; and endangering children, a first-degree misdemeanor, according to court records.

The endangering children charge stemmed from Stehney being the parent or legal guardian of four children, three boys and one girl, all under the age of 18, according to the indictment, which was filed Aug. 26.

The Portage County Drug Task Force initially arrested Stehney in June after police responded to a domestic call and discovered an undisclosed amount of marijuana and other drugs.

Stehney is scheduled to be arraigned on the charges Friday in Portage County Common Pleas Judge Laurie Pittman’s courtroom.

So big deal. Drugs never hurt anybody, right?

Ketamine? DMT? What decade is this man living in?
