LIMA — An Allen County jury deliberated for less than two hours Thursday evening before finding a Lima man guilty of 10 felony drug and weapons charges.

Alonzo Williams, 29, was immediately sentenced by Judge Terri Kohlrieser to 17 years in prison.

Williams was indicted by grand jury in February 2019 on 10 felony counts, including failure to comply with the order or signal of a police officer, possession of heroin with a specification for the forfeiture of money in a drug case, aggravated possession of drugs with a specification for the forfeiture of money in a drug case, aggravated possession of drugs with a specification for the forfeiture of money in a drug case, aggravated possession of drugs with a specification for the forfeiture of money in a drug case, trafficking in heroin, aggravated trafficking in drugs, tampering with evidence, having a weapon under disability and carrying a concealed weapon.

The counts range from second- to fifth-degree felonies.

Among the witnesses at the trial were a confidential informant, who testified that he purchased drugs from Williams, and a toxicologist from the Ohio Bureau of Criminal Investigation, who testified the drugs included a mixture of heroin and fentanyl and the pills contained oxycodone and hydrocodone.
