Leonard Radford, 34, of Columbus, pleaded guilty to possession of drugs. He was among multiple suspects arrested in November following an investigation by the Logan County Drug Task Force.

The defendant was helping to supply and sell crack cocaine out of a residence at 416 N. Detroit St. He would obtain the drugs in Columbus and transport them to Logan County to sell, prosecutors said.

An accomplice, Brooks Radcliffe, 31, of Columbus, pleaded guilty to attempted carrying a concealed weapon. He also was arrested as part of the Nov. 2 raid at 416 N. Detroit St.

During their search, law enforcement located a cell phone stashed under a couch next to a Glock .40 caliber gun with ammunition located nearby, prosecutors said. Police asked to whom the phone belonged, and the defendant said it was his. He also was then charged with possession of the firearm.

Both defendants will be sentenced May 28.
Also pleading guilty were:
• Shawn Lile, 43, of Bellefontaine: complicity to burglary. He will be sentenced May 20;
• Andrew Feltner, 26, of Wapakoneta: burglary. He was placed on intervention in lieu of conviction and must complete drug and alcohol counseling and three years’ community control.

Sentenced were:
• Hannah Lykins, 20, of Lakeview: five years’ community control and ordered to pay a $250 fine, court costs, restitution and attorney fees for two counts of possession of drugs and forgery; and
• Floyd Stevens, 40, of Kenton: three years’ community control and ordered to pay court costs and attorney fees for non-support of dependents.
