LIMA — A Lima man will spend at least three years in prison, possibly more, after pleading guilty Friday to a pair of drug-related offenses.

Greg Darby, 58, will also be $13,000 lighter in the wallet when he is sentenced March 8.

Darby was indicted by an Allen County grand jury in August on counts of possession of a fentanyl-related compound, a first-degree felony with specifications for the forfeiture of money and property in a drug case; trafficking in cocaine, a fifth-degree felony; possession of cocaine, a felony of the third degree with specifications for the forfeiture of money and property in a drug case; and possession of heroin, a third-degree felony with specifications for the forfeiture of money and property in a drug case.

Two of the charges were dismissed as part of a negotiated deal with prosecutors. Darby entered guilty pleas to possession of cocaine and possession of a fentanyl-related compound. The latter carries a mandatory prison term of between three and 11 years and also calls for Darby to forfeit $13,685 in drug profits.

Darby is alleged during December 2019 to have been in possession of more than 20 grams but less than 50 grams of a compound containing fentanyl and to have possessed cocaine in an amount between 10 and 20 grams.

He will be ordered to make restitution in the amount of $120 to the West Central Ohio Crime Task Force.
