Clermont County drug dealer sentenced after overdose death
CLERMONT COUNTY, Ohio (WKRC) - A judge sentenced a Union Township man to 14 years in prison for selling drugs, including some that led to a fatal overdose. Tyler Liming had pleaded guilty to involuntary manslaughter, aggravated trafficking in drugs and engaging in a pattern of corrupt activity in March.
On October 30, 2016, Liming sold drugs to a person that though he or she was buying Percoset. According to Clermont County assistant prosecutor Katherine Terpstra, the pills were designed and stamped to look like the prescription pills but they were a designed drug called U-47700, which is seven or eight times more powerful than morphine.
The person overdosed and died from taking the U-47700.
During the investigation, Union Township Police learned Liming had been ordering illegal drugs through the dark web. He'd have them shipped to his mother's apartment and the homes of other family members and friends. Investigators tracked some of Liming's drug transactions through Facebook.
Detectives also found Liming was buying and selling large amounts of LSD, Xanax and dabs, which is a form of THC oil.
Liming took off during the investigation. He was arrested in Florida and extradited to Clermont County.
