Warren man guilty of drug trafficking
WARREN — A Warren man pleaded guilty Tuesday to three felony charges dealing with a drug investigation in late 2020 conducted by the sheriff’s Trumbull Action Group task force.
Myron Baskins, 35, of Jefferson Street SW, was convicted of two counts of trafficking in a fentanyl-related compound and another trafficking count involving cocaine. Baskins will be sentenced by Common Pleas Judge Andrew D. Logan after he undergoes a background investigation by the adult probation department.
Counts of trafficking and possession of a fentanyl-related compound against Baskins were dismissed as part of the plea agreement, according to prosecutors. Baskins faces a potential maximum 42-month prison sentence.
The case against Baskins involves three drug buys by a confidential informant working with TAG, prosecutors said.
On Aug. 5, 2020, an informant bought 0.41 grams of cocaine for $100, a report stated. The two other buys involved 0.89 grams and 1.22 grams of fentanyl-related compounds purchased by that informant Nov. 24, 2020, and Dec. 11, 2020.
