Drug indictments against Richmond duo

Two Big Hill Avenue residents were indicted last week on multiple drug charges following an investigation by the Central Kentucky Area Drug Task Force.

Heather Moore, 22, and Ronald Moore, 26, both of the 300 block of Big Hill Avenue, were indicted on marijuana and oxycodone trafficking, among other charges.

Ronald Moore faces charges of felony trafficking in more than eight ounces of marijuana, possession of a handgun by a convicted felon, first-degree trafficking in a controlled substance, felony possession of drug paraphernalia, second-degree possession of a controlled substance, third-degree possession of a controlled substance and complicity to commit trafficking in less than eight ounces of marijuana.

Heather Moore is charged with felony trafficking in more than eight ounces of marijuana, first-degree trafficking in a controlled substance, misdemeanor possession of drug paraphernalia, second-degree possession of a controlled substance, third-degree possession of a controlled substance and misdemeanor trafficking in less than eight ounces of marijuana.

The crimes are alleged to have been committed on Jan. 12 and 13, and involve the sale of marijuana to a cooperating witness working for the task force, according to the indictment.

If convicted, Heather Moore faces the potential of up to a total of 15 years in prison on the felony marijuana trafficking charge and the first-degree trafficking in a controlled substance charge, and could be sentenced to up to 12 months in jail on each of the four misdemeanor charges against her.

Ronald Moore could receive up to 30 years in prison if sentenced to the maximum on the felony marijuana trafficking charge, the handgun possession charge, the first-degree trafficking charge and the paraphernalia charge, and could receive up to 12 months in jail on each of the three misdemeanor charges against him.
