Three Detroit men charged with heroin-trafficking

RICHMOND — Three Detroit men were arrested and charged with trafficking heroin Thursday at a Heathcliff Drive home. One was on probation in a previous drug case, according to Richmond police.

Torrance T. Mickens, 41, Raymond A. Casey 23, and Carnell D. Hart, 24, were all charged with two counts of first-degree trafficking in a controlled substance and possession of marijuana.

Mickens also was charged with third-degree trafficking in a controlled substance (Xanax).

From Feb. 10 to Thursday, Richmond narcotics detectives made controlled purchases of heroin from the three men, according to the police report.

The detectives executed a search warrant Thursday night at the residence, and they reported finding in excess of 8 grams of heroin, 86 Xanax pills, a small amount of marijuana and more than $8,000.

When he was arrested, Hart was on probation from a heroin possession conviction, according to the report. He was sentenced in January 2013 in Madison Circuit Court to three years in prison, which was suspended, and he was placed on probation for three years.

The officers also found a digital scale, plastic bags and a small amount of marijuana, according to the report.

Hill arrived while officers were at the scene. He was detained, and following an interview at the police station, was arrested.
