Judge H. Patrick Weir granted extensions to three people involved in Class A felony drug cases to allow time to reach plea agreements during hearings at the Stark County Courthouse Tuesday afternoon.
All three were arrested using the same confidential information, which authorities said has been missing since September.
Stark County State’s Attorney Tom Henning said he needs to review their cases to determine if there is enough evidence without the missing confidential informant.
Rebecca Olheiser faces two charges for allegedly delivering prescription pills and one charge of conspiring to deliver prescription pills. She was granted a one week extension.
Samantha Entze faces three charges for allegedly delivering MDMA, also known as ecstasy. She was granted a two week extension.
Jared Dillon, charged with delivery of a controlled substance, methamphetamine, was granted a one week extension.
Olheiser, Entze and Dillon were arrested as part of a large drug bust in July which resulted in 17 arrests.
A drug case against Douglas Johnson, who was also arrested as part of the bust, was dismissed Friday, according to Stark County court records.
Johnson was charged for allegedly delivering prescription drugs.
“The state’s primary witness is unavailable at this time and his whereabouts are unknown,” is the reason listed on the motion to dismiss.
