2 facing counts of drug dealing

Two Fort Wayne residents face federal and state charges related to alleged drug dealing.

Last week, a federal grand jury indicted Ronnie L. Rutherford Jr. and Laura A. Plumb on one count each of maintaining a place for distributing a controlled substance. Rutherford was also indicted on two counts of possession of a firearm by a felon, and one count of using a firearm in furtherance of a drug trafficking crime.

Both are of the 7100 block of Cranberry Road. It is that address they are accused of using as a drug house.

In Allen Superior Court, Rutherford faces similar charges, including maintaining a common nuisance and possession of a firearm by a serious violent felon.

He is also charged with dealing cocaine, possession of methamphetamine and possession of a controlled substance.

Plumb is charged in state court with maintaining a common nuisance and possession of cocaine and methamphetamine.
