Seven charged in federal court with conspiracy to distribute drugs

Seven people have been charged in federal court with conspiracy to distribute methamphetamine, cocaine and fentanyl in northern Indiana, according to the US Attorney's Office.

Prosecutors say the conspiracy happened between May 2019 and August 2020.

  • Frederick Morgan II was charged with conspiracy to distribute methamphetamine, cocaine and fentanyl, 15 counts of distributing controlled substances and 1 count of maintaining a drug involved premises.
  • Monica Duvalon was charged with conspiracy to distribute methamphetamine, cocaine and fentanyl and 2 counts of distributing controlled substances.
  • Frederick Morgan Sr was charged with conspiracy to distribute methamphetamine, cocaine and fentanyl, and 2 counts of distributing controlled substances.
  • Larry Lamb was charged with conspiracy to distribute methamphetamine, cocaine and fentanyl, 2 counts of distributing controlled substances, 1 count of possession of a firearm in furtherance of a drug trafficking crime, and 2 counts of providing a firearm to a felon.
  • Sarah Waltz was charged with conspiracy to distribute methamphetamine, cocaine and fentanyl, and 1 count of distributing a controlled substance.
  • James Russell Jr was charged with conspiracy to distribute methamphetamine, cocaine and fentanyl and 1 count of distributing a controlled substance.
  • Eddie Knox was charged with conspiracy to distribute methamphetamine, cocaine and fentanyl, 5 counts of distributing a controlled substance and 1 count of maintaining a drug involved premises.

“Today’s drug and gun charges allege that many highly addictive controlled substances were flooding the streets of Northern Indiana, which increases the propensity for violence, particularly when firearms are present,” said US Attorney Thomas L. Kirsch II. “I commend the ATF and DEA along with all the other law enforcement agencies involved in this case for their hard work. We will continue to focus on these type of cases to keep our communities safe.”
