SAGINAW, MI (WNEM) -

More than a dozen men have been charged with drug trafficking in Mid-Michigan.

Investigators said from June 2015 to approximately August 2016, the men conspired to sell cocaine and heroin in the Saginaw area, primarily in a portion of the city commonly known as the South Side or the Sunnyside.

“Drug trafficking organizations poison our neighborhoods and harm the quality of life our residents deserve,” U.S. Attorney Barbara L. McQuade said. “We are focusing our attention on traffickers like these defendants, who are contributing to heroin and fentanyl abuse.”

The following have been charged with conspiring to sell crack cocaine, heroin and fentanyl:

  • Damarlin Markeel Beavers, 32
  • Derek Duane Riley, 45
  • Alvin Richard Pratt, 27
  • Brandon Omar Pratt, 32
  • Javon Malik Pratt, 19
  • Michael Allan Pratt Jr., 25
  • Marquise Deshawn Ashworth, 35
  • Eugene Smith III, 28
  • Jeremy Anthony Cameron, 31
  • Terence Jarmar Johnson, 33
  • Lamar Terrel Simon, 26
  • Darreyon Rayquan-Johnell Mayfield, 20
  • Jauane Reggienald Allen, 20

“As a consequence of these efforts, we are reclaiming and making neighborhoods safer for many citizens throughout the Mid-Michigan area,” McQuade said.

All 13 men are residents of Saginaw and said to be members of the Sunnyside Gang.
