Charges filed against alleged marijuana dealers

Greensburg — Two of the suspects apprehended at the end of a year-long drug investigation concluded Friday have now been formally charged in the Decatur Superior Court.

Charging information filed Friday indicates Bryant Paul Moffett, 18, of 1007 South Ireland Street in Greensburg, and Will Robert Hermesch, 20, of 704 South Ryle Drive in Greensburg, each face multiple charges of dealing in marijuana, a class C felony.

Hermesch faces six separate counts of dealing in marijuana, dating back to alleged incidents beginning in January. Moffett faces a pair of charges stemming from incidents in March in which he is alleged to have worked with Hermesch during the transactions.

Police assert Hermesh delivered varying quantities of marijuana to confidential police informants and undercover police officers, pocketing a total of $3,180 among the six transactions. The first exchange took place Jan. 10 at 1915 North Lincoln Street.

That transaction was followed a week later by a similar deal conducted at the Greensburg City Park. The park was the location of the third deal, which police reports state took place Feb. 21.

The final three alleged transactions for which Hermesch faces charges took place in the parking lot of The Oaks on Davidson, a local apartment complex. Those three deals amounted to more than $3,000 and took place March 6, March 13 and April 4. Moffett is alleged to have been present and involved with all three of the incidents at The Oaks. Officials allege more than half a pound of marijuana was delivered by the suspects during that time.

Police reports state the suspects described the marijuana as being of different types, called “bubba kush,” “lemon haze” and “train wreck.”

Both suspects remained incarcerated in the Decatur County Jail Monday.

Hermesch had a commercial bond set in the amount of $30,005. Moffett’s commercial bond was set at $20,005.

Both men were arrested Friday as two of a total of seven local residents arrested on drug charges relating to this investigation. Members of the Greensburg Police Department, the Westport Town Marshal’s Office and the Indiana State Police Drug Enforcement Section conducted the investigation, as well as the subsequent raids and arrests.
