Samuel C. Lundt, 31, Marion, was charged with felony possession of narcotics with intent to deliver.
On Nov. 9, Clintonville Police Officer Dennis Schroeder spoke with a woman who reported that she had received a text message from Lundt, asking if she was interested in buying some Percocet, a brand name for a pain medication that contains oxycodone. She said Lundt was under the impression that he was communicating with her sister.
Schroeder provided the woman with $150 and she arranged for Lundt to come to her home in Clintonville and sell her some pills at $10 each.
Schroeder waited inside the woman’s house, while other officers were positioned outside behind some trees.
A green van pulled into the woman’s driveway and she went out to speak with the front seat passenger, whom police identified as Lundt.
Before any transaction took place, Lundt saw one of the officers and the van began to back out of the driveway. Officers then stepped out and ordered the van to stop and Lundt to exit the vehicle.
According to the criminal complaint, Lundt told the police that he had not intended to sell the sisters any drugs. He said they had ripped him off on a marijuana deal a couple of months earlier and he was trying to get his money back by ripping them off.
Police confiscated a prescription bottle containing 30 oxycodone pills and reported finding a cellophane wrapper under the front passenger’s seat with nine oxycodone pills in it.
