INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) – Three Indianapolis men have been convicted on heroin and gun charges for their roles in a heroin trafficking organization that operated on the city’s west side.
United States Attorney Joseph H. Hogsett announced on Wednesday that 36-year-old Brandon Lomax, 35-year-old Demond Glover and 29-year-old Anthony Lomax were found guilty on all counts after a nine day jury that included more than 30 witnesses.
Hogsett said the 20 criminal counts against the men included conspiring to possess heroin and distribution of heroin. Brandon and Anthony Lomax were also found guilty of federal firearms violations.
A jury found the men conspired between 2009 and 2012 to distribute kilogram-quantities of heroin in and around the Haughville area of Indianapolis. The men would get the heroin in Chicago, and then bring it to Indianapolis for distributed across the city to other dealers.
All three men face a minimum of 20 years in federal prison, with the possibility of serving life without parole. They must serve a minimum of 85 percent of their sentence in a correctional facility. They also face years of federally-supervised release at the end of their prison term, a release said.
