During the past year, numerous drug-related search warrants have been executed within the City of Delphos. On many occasions, the suspect is not arrested at the scene. Although this practice may alarm certain people, it is standard procedure, and does not mean the suspect has “gotten away” with any alleged crime(s).
After the search warrant has been executed and all evidence has been gathered, the investigating officer presents the facts to a Grand Jury. The Grand Jury then determines if there is sufficient evidence to formally charge (indict) the suspect with a crime.
During the October session of the Allen County Grand Jury, four individuals from Delphos were indicted with drug related crimes. All four have recently been arrested on these indictments and are in custody in the Allen County Jail. They are as follows:
David W. Nelson, 50 — Charged with two counts of felony 5 trafficking in marijuana and one count of felony 4 trafficking in marijuana. Nelson was found at his home in the 400 block of East Suthoff Street and was arrested without incident.
